4th International Workshop on Diagnostic and Interventional Prostate MRI
April 2019, Thursday 11th and Friday 12th, Paris, France

Objectives of the workshop
The use of prostate MRI is expanding, as demonstrated by the growing evidence
of its clinical utility. However, consistently assigning a reproducible PI-RADS score to
visible lesions, evaluating local, regional and distant tumor extension and detecting
tumor local recurrence after radical of focal treatment remain a difficult task in clinical
practice.
Confirmatory diagnosis of PCa requires a targeted biopsy based on MRI findings. A
targeted biopsy only policy is more and more often considered to increase the
detection of significant Ca. In bore MRI guidance may thus be an attractive alternative
to MRI-TRUS image fusion to guide the biopsy and the respective indications of TRUS
or MRI guidance can be more precisely delineated.
Lastly, MRI can be used to guide in-bore focal treatments of selected tumors. Focal
treatments are performed with a physical agent delivered under direct MRI guidance
to perform a focal ablation, while preserving the rest of the prostate gland. The
respective roles of in-bore cryotherapy, laser ablation or high intensity focused are
under evaluation.

th International Workshop

on Diagnostic and Interventional Prostate MRI
April 2019, Thursday 11th and Friday 12th, Paris, France
Attention has been paid to several specific features
The availability of workstations allowing for a true-life interpretation of
numerous prostate cases. The cases will then be commented and discussed by the
experts.
The correlation with the histology of whole mount radical prostatectomy
specimens, an invaluable source of information on the MRI appearance of cancers
difficult to detect and on the actual tumor burden which should be evaluated as
precisely as possible to ensure the delineation of an appropriate target volume
during focal therapy
A question-and-answer electronic voting system that will evaluate the learning
curve throughout the workshop, ensuring a high interactivity and allowing for
exchanges with experts. The format of the workshop allows it because it is limited to
40 participants.
At the end of the workshop, participants will know:
1. How to accurately use the PIRADS 2019 version v2.1
2. Why prostate MRI before biopsy is recommended
3. Why targeted biopsies only may become a standard of care
4. Where to look for signs of tumor extra-prostatic extension
5. What are the limitations of DWI to estimate tumor aggressiveness, especially in
the transition zone
6. How to evaluate node and bone staging of high risk prostate cancer
7. How to detect local recurrence after radical treatment
8. The different techniques and indications of in bore MRI-guided focal therapy.
