UDRI : Union pour le Développement de la Radiologie Interventionnelle

Founded in 2003, the non-profit organization UDRI aims to promote diagnostic and interventional prostate MRI.  

  • Continuing education

    Prostate MRI is now recommended before biopsy to localize suspicious areas requiring a targeted biopsy. A learning curve is necessary to accurately interpret prostate MRI examinations. The association organizes workshops on prostate MRI, validated by a French or European accreditation.and encourages radiologists to register to these teachnig courses to improve their knowledge of MRI features of prostate cancer. 

  • The interventional program

    Using the same technology, the association is currently launching a feasibility study of transperineal focal laser ablation of localised prostate cancer under microUS guidance. Focal laser ablation aims to treat the tumor itself, not the entire prostate which is the target of all radical treatments. Focal treatment spares the healthy tissue adjacent to the tumor, protecting the patient from side effects (sexual impotence, urinary incontinence) that can be observed after radical treatment (surgery or radiation therapy)
