  • Prostate MRI and MRI-Targeted Procedures: The Comprehensive Course
Bring your practice in line with the most current standards and practices for

prostate MR imaging and guided biopsy. The program faculty include today’s
leaders in prostate MRI and members of the PI-RADS working group.


  •  Prostate Cancer pathology and MRI correlation
  •  How we do it: technique and image protocols
  •  Interpretation of MP-MRI using PI-RADS, including rules and pitfalls
  •  WHY and WHEN we do prostate MRI
  •  How to do MRI-targeted biopsies using MRI-ultrasound fusion and in-bore technologies
  •  Practical ideas for building a prostate MRI clinical practice


Your package includes the program, reproduced from high resolution masters, the program syllabus in electronic form (online, USB drive and IPad/Android app) and CME certification for 1 user. Your colleagues may purchase Additional User Packages if they would like to obtain their own CME. The syllabus is also available in hard copy.

The Institute for Advanced Medical Education is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Institute for Advanced Medical Education designates this enduring material for a maximum of 13 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.™ Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Radiologists may apply all 13 credits earned in this program as SA-CME credits toward the MOC requirements of the ABR.

Release Date: June 1, 2015

Expiration Date: May 31, 2018

You will review the fundamentals of prostate MRI practice and explore HOW, WHY
and WHEN the faculty uses it, their techniques and image protocols. In
addition to didactic sessions there is a whole day of case-based instruction
that emphasizes scoring (including PI-RADS), pitfalls and challenges.
