Pelvic Floor Dysfunction is a complex set of conditions. Imaging can help identify and quantify the multicompartment involvement that may not always be apparent on physical examination.

Imaging techniques vary considerably between centres, and there is need for more standardized utilization, interpretation, and reporting of imaging for the pelvic floor as per recently published recommendations from ESUR and ESGAR Pelvic Floor Working Group*

Upon completing this fellowship, participants will be able to develop, implement, and adequately report pelvic floor imaging protocols tailored to the specific needs of their referring physicians and patients. The lectures will systematically demonstrate the various types of pelvic floor dysfunction via a combination of schematics, real-time cine-loops of dynamic and static images, as well as complete cases for review by the participants.

Each module starts with a lecture. After the lecture you will be challenged with practicing on real anonymised key cases. After and during the individual case readings there will be plenty of time for group discussion and Q&A with the mentor.

TMC Academy online radiology courses with certificates 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.

“A real gem of a course to find! Rania was a great teacher. The course structure was broken into segments, which made learning so much easier. All bases were covered and by the end I was very happy with my knowledge. This will be valuable in setting up a pelvic floor service in my unit. Thank you so much” Dr. Valeria Morales (Fellow, June 2024)

Learning objectives

  • Learn comprehensive MR technique for evaluation of the pelvic floor including appropriate sequences, utility of rectal contrast and defecation phase, appropriate technologist education, and patient coaching
  • Review anatomy of the pelvic floor including levator anatomy, and landmarks used in functional evaluation
  • Learn functional imaging of the pelvic floor including appropriate measurement and grading of prolapse in the anterior, middle, and posterior compartments as well as assessment of anorectal and defecatory dysfunction
  • Learn appropriate reporting of MR defecography – what the referring physicians want to know

Programme will include

  • Various lectures
  • Individual case reading and interpretation on provided cases
  • Group case discussion of the selected cases
  • Plenty of time for Q&A with the radiologist mentor
