Research and Education News Practical Applications of Prostate MRI: Integrating Latest Advances into Clinical Practice CME Lecture March 16, 2013 to March 16, 2013 02/28/2013
The course will focus on the understanding of MR imaging as applied to prostate cancer. We will review all relevant MR imaging components of prostate cancer including T2, perfusion, diffusion, and spectroscopic imaging. In conjunction with the UCLA Departments of Urology and Radiation Oncology, we will review application of MR imaging in surgical planning for robotic prostatectomy, prostate biopsy planning, active surveillance and radiation planning. We will also discuss state-of-the-art MR/US fusion biopsy and direct MR-guided biopsy planning.
