The BCRS takes great pleasure in offering a Prostate MRI Simulation Workshop to Radiologists interested in this specialized area of MR imaging.

  • Participate in prostate MRI-US fusion demonstration.

In addition to the simulation exercises, there will also be short didactic sessions.

At the conclusion of this simulation workshop, participants will be able to:

  • perform and interpret prostate MRI in accordance to PIRADSv2
  • create a standardized template report
  • recognize pitfalls and mimics in interpreting multi-parametric prostate MRI
  • become familiar with MR imaging of the prostate post-treatment and
  • become familiar with prostate MRI-US fusion guided prostate biopsy techniques.
