Learning Outcomes and Modules

Upon completion of this program you will be able to:

  • distinguish between significant and insignificant prostate cancers and clinical outcomes
  • review the most commonly used components of a multiparametric prostate MRI examination
  • identify the appearance of a normal prostate, benign entities, low-grade tumors, and “significant” cancers with multiparametric MRI
  • apply DWI and angiotensin-converting enzyme appearance in the context of the examination as an aid in determining the clinical significance of a finding
  • appreciate the rapidly evolving options for targeted biopsy and focal treatment options
  • recognize the wide range of clinical settings where MRI can be a powerful diagnostic tool: screening, active surveillance, staging, recurrence identification, treatment planning, and treatment response evaluation.
