Prostate MR



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 (PI-RADS v2) for standardized communication of imaging findings.

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

Earn up to 22.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™and 22 SAM Credits.
