Learn about the latest advancements and techniques in the rapidly growing field of prostate MRI—including the PI-RADS™ version 2 update and T2-weighted imaging—to improve your diagnostic skills. Delivered by renowned subject specialists, this Online Course offers leading-edge insights into emerging focal therapies, probable pitfalls, and much more.

Learning Outcomes and Modules:
Upon completion of this program you will be able to:
• Distinguish between significant and insignificant prostate cancers and clinical outcomes
• Review the most commonly used components of a multiparametric prostate MRI examination
• Identify the appearance of a normal prostate, benign entities, low-grade tumors, and “significant” cancers with multiparametric MRI
• Apply DWI and angiotensin-converting enzyme appearance in the context of the examination as an aid in determining the clinical significance of a finding
• Appreciate the rapidly evolving options for targeted biopsy and focal treatment options
• Recognize the wide range of clinical settings where MRI can be a powerful diagnostic tool: screening, active surveillance, staging, recurrence identification, treatment planning, and treatment response evaluation.
