Session

Prostate cancer imaging: When and how to use it

ESU Course 32

  • Location:
    Room 13b (ICM, Level 1)
  • Chair:
     J. Walz, Marseille (FR)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    Recently new imaging technologies have been developed to improve the diagnosis and management of prostate cancer. These are multiparametric MRI, choline PET and new ultrasound based technologies.
    The course’s aim is to provide:
    • An overview on the currently available imaging tools for prostate cancer
    • Practical information about their use
    • A critical assessment of their clinical performance and their limitations.
