ARRS Pearls and Pitfalls in Prostate and Pelvic Imaging 2021 (CME VIDEOS)


This course provides a practical overview and update on clinically relevant topics in prostate and female pelvic imaging. Highlighting cutting-edge MR developments and solutions for implementing a robust clinical prostate program, practical tips will be given on optimizing MR protocols for the pelvis, reducing imaging artifacts, use of PI-RADS v2.1 for prostate imaging, focal treatment techniques, and MR-Transrectal Ultrasound fusion biopsy techniques.
