Objective of the workshop
This workshop is based on a self-assessment of 60 clinical cases loaded on work stations that registrants will have to analyze to fully understand all MRI features of prostate cancer (PCa). Each of the 6 self-assessment sessions includes 10 clinical cases, which will be discussed by experts who will show the correlation with the whole mount radical prostatectomy specimen, whenever possible.
This anatomical-radiological correlation is an invaluable tool to ensure a reliable interpretation of prostate MRI, even for those who are familiar with prostate MRI.
Self-assessment represents about 60% of the workshop content. Pre-biopsy detection of the largest lesion (index lesion) is the primary objective, especially in the transition zone, but other clinical situations will be presented, including detection of satellite lesions, tumor reassessment in patients under active surveillance, determination of tumor stage in high-risk cancers and detection of local and distant recurrence after radical treatment (surgery or radiation).
Short powerpoint presentations will be included between interpretation sessions (proper use of PI-RADS, artificial intelligence, signs of extraprostatic tumor extension and their location, updated Gleason score correlated to the ADC value and targeted biopsies)
An electronic voting system that will evaluate the learning curve throughout the workshop, ensuring a high interactivity and allowing for exchanges with experts. This is made possible by a number of participants limited to 40.
