MRI imaging for prostate cancer webinar – 22 June (13:30- 14:10)

Wednesday 15 June 2016

In this webinar aimed at UK healthcare professionals, Dr Phil Haslam FRCR, a Consultant Interventional and Uroradiologist at the Freeman Hospital, Newcastle-upon-Tyne will cover MRI imaging for prostate cancer. Starting with a brief overview of prostate cancer, and what the problems are with the current/old strategies of staging. Dr Haslam will discuss what the urologist and oncologist need to know from imaging the prostate gland. He will then discuss mpMRI, what it means and how he performs it. Also discussed will be how we locate tumour, how we assess its aggressiveness and how we stage the tumour. This will involve discussion of DWI and dynamic contrast enhanced MRI. There are several pitfalls that the radiologist needs to be aware of when interpreting these types of scan and these will be illustrating these with clinical examples. PI-RADS 2 will be discussed (advantages/disadvantages) along with Phil's current method for reporting these types of scan.

Dr Haslam has a keen interest in uroradiology and interventional radiology with a wide experience of interventional and imaging techniques. He is the current chairman of the British Society of Urogenital Radiology and also runs an online independent review website for medical devices ‘Which Medical Device’. His current areas of interest are prostatic artery embolization, prostate MRI and tumour ablation techniques.
