Interpret MR images to develop and communicate a plan to the other physicians and develop patient specific treatment plans.
Distinguish lesions seen on prostate MRI and identify suspicious characteristics.
Assess potential MR imaging pitfalls in early detection of prostate cancer and develop
Define the basic terminology associated with performing a multi‐parametric MRI of the
It is paramount that urologists understand the basic fundamentals of prostate imaging and targeted biopsy techniques. During the course, physicians will have the opportunity to ask questions and obtain tips and tricks from some of the international leaders in the field who have helped implement multi‐parametric imaging of the prostate. We will review the basics of MR imaging, interpretation, and imaging pitfalls. We will provide hands on interaction which will include guided case review, practice cases with reviewer feedback explanation on imaging tips and tricks to help optimize MRI results. The course layout will be similar to the approach of the Society of Abdominal Radiology (SAR) which will include large room format with a leader in the front guiding the urologist through studies. We will also include some basic lectures to open and close the course. A survey of urologists attending the MR US fusion biopsy beginner's course at AUA 2016 revealed that < 30% self‐reported understanding on interpreting a prostate MRI.
