Radiologists who would like to initiate on reporting prostate MRI will find the fellowship very appropriate. In 3 half days, the fellowship covers key topics related to MRI of prostate cancer and provides basic knowledge. MRI findings of the prostate and pelvis will be discussed with a lecture, followed by daily individual case reading with subsequent group discussions.

The programme includes an overview of the main indications to perform MRI of the prostate: Diagnosis (PI-RAD), staging (local and systemic), follow up (post-treatment and active surveillance).

Each module starts with a lecture. After the lecture you will be challenged with practicing on real anonymised key cases. After the individual case readings and group discussions there will be plenty of time for a ‘Questions and Answers’ session with Dr. Vilanova.

TMC Academy fellowships are held in a virtual classroom environment on Zoom. Participants are encouraged to engage in discussions making use of their camera and microphone to recreate the face-to-face experience.

Online sessions are recorded so that participants can review on their own time following the training.

In this small group environment among your peers, you are free to ask questions, make mistakes, and learn together with the support of the radiologist mentor.

This fellowship is organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.
