“The last few years have seen a paradigm shift in how we image men with suspected prostate cancer. Prostate Cancer UK in conjunction with the RCR and BSUR have produced a training programme to introduce radiologists to the technique of pre-biopsy mpMRI of the prostate gland. We hope that this will encourage more radiologists to become familiar with this prior to undertaking a practical course in mpMRI.” Dr Phil Haslam
Want to be part of a prostate imaging breakthrough?
Then sign up for training in multi-parametric MRI before TRUS biopsy.
Results from the ground-breaking PROMIS study (the Prostate MRI Imaging Study) show that performing a multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) scan before undertaking a TRUS biopsy can radically improve the accuracy of prostate cancer diagnosis.
Radiologists are now more critical than ever to the prostate cancer diagnostic pathway. This is why the Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) in partnership with Prostate Cancer UK has joined forces with leading uroradiologists’ Drs Phil Haslam (representing BSUR), Jonathan Richenberg and Amit Patel to develop a multifactorial training programme.
First, watch a webinar presented by Dr Phil Haslam. View the webinar here.
Second, complete an e-learning programme on the Prostate Cancer UK training platform that provides the pre-requisite learning needed to prepare for more in depth practical training provided by the RCR on 23 January 2018. Register now for the e-learning programme on the Prostate Cancer UK website here.
Third, participate in this case-based workshop organised by Dr Jonathan Richenberg and aimed at radiologists who have completed the e-learning or have some experience of performing prostate mpMRI before biopsy
and wish to increase their skills and confidence further.
