mpMRI before biopsy

The PROMIS trial demonstrates that multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) is indicated  pre-biopsy in most men with suspected prostate cancer. Radiologists will play a pivotal role in implementing this new diagnostic pathway but mpMRI is a complex technique. This module provides an overview of prostate MRI in preparation for practical mpMRI training.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • appreciate the critical role of radiologists in transforming the prostate cancer diagnostic pathway
  • recognise the normal MRI appearance of the prostate gland and associated structures
  • identify the features that suggest prostate cancer and help with local staging based on mpMRI
  • understand how mpMRI scans are interpreted and how scans can be optimised
  • understand how mpMRI scans are scored and reported mpMRI, whilst being aware of pitfalls in interpretation
  • know the critical importance of effective MRI calibration using specific protocols
