UCSF Prostate Cancer Imaging with Hands-on Workshops

April 25 - April 26

Overview

This course will present the fundamentals and latest developments of prostate cancer imaging and management. The combination of lectures and hands-on workshops offers a unique opportunity for practicing physicians to become proficient in performing a comprehensive imaging evaluation of patients with prostate cancer at all stages.

The course will instruct in how to perform, interpret and report a multiparametric prostate MR exam in a time-efficient and accurate manner. The hands-on US-MRI fusion biopsy workshop will demonstrate how this technology is utilized to improve the care of patients. MR imaging has long been shown to be a powerful tool for the assessment of prostate cancer, but its use for biopsy guidance has only recently been widely accepted as a way to overcome the inherent limitations of transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy.
