Prostate MR

Earn up to 20.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

This 100-case, two-day course is designed to provide practicing radiologists with intense training in the interpretation of multiparametric prostate MRI (mpMRI) and the use of Prostate Imaging — Reporting and Data System version 2.1 (PI-RADS™ v2.1) for standardized communication of imaging findings.

Throughout this program, participants will develop their interpretative skills at individual workstations by review of prostate mpMRI cases with pathology correlation. A series of didactic lectures MR-guided prostate biopsy techniques will complement the training session with focus on imaging techniques optimization.
