Event description

Description

Join us in the beautiful Palm Springs for three days of CME with a world-renowned international faculty. During this first-of-its kind event at the USCAP Interactive Learning Center, participants will learn about multi-parametric prostate MRI, MRI guided interventions and genitourinary pathology. Limited priority seating for on-site case participation is also available. Learn all about advancements in prostate cancer management from the experts!

Day 1

1:00-1:45 Evolution of Prostate MRI and MR-guided Intervention - B. Greenwood During this session a review of the literature will be followed by discussion about the role of MRI in detection, diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer.

1:45-2:30 Normal Prostate Anatomy P. Puech – This module will help participants better understand normal prostate anatomy through case-based review.

2:30-3:15 PI-RADS in Everyday Practice - D.J. Margolis PI-RADS was implemented to standardize acquisition and reporting for prostate MRI. This session will familiarize participants with its use in clinical practice.

3:15-3:45 Image Analysis - B. Greenwood Participants will learn common analysis tools such as gland segmentation, generating ROIs and creating PI-RADS reports.

3:45-4:00 Break

4:00-4:45 Case-based Review - R. Gupta Clinical cases will be reviewed and discussed during this session to familiarize participants with imaging features of prostate cancer and other pathology.

4:45–5:30 Protocol Optimization - R. Gupta Imaging protocol optimization is key for good diagnostic prostate MRI. This session will help participants understand image quality and how to achieve diagnostic prostate MR images.

5:30-6:15 MR-Guided Biopsy of the Prostate – J. Feller MRI-guided biopsy is becoming more common and this session will describe techniques and strategies for achieving the best possible targeting of prostate cores.

6:15-7:00 MR-Guided Laser Focal Therapy for Prostate Cancer - J. Feller During this session participants will receive an overview of laser focal therapy and an update on Clinical Trial NCT #02243033.

7:00 Faculty Dinner – Premium participants are VIP guests at this interactive dinner

Day 2

8:00-8:30 Biopsy Case Planning - B. Greenwood During this session participants will review the two patient cases for biopsy this morning and simulate planning with MR-guidance software.

8:30-10:00 Patient A Biopsy, Participant Biopsy Planning (Group 1) - B. Greenwood, J. Feller An actual patient biopsy will be performed during this session. Premium participants will be present for the procedure.

10:00-10:15 Break

10:15-12:00 Patient B Biopsy, Participant Biopsy Planning (Group 2) - B. Greenwood, J. Feller An actual patient biopsy will be performed during this session. Premium participants will be present for the procedure.

12:00-1:30 Q & A, Debrief Cases - B. Greenwood, J. Feller

Day 3

8:00-8:30 The Evolving Role of Clinical Genomics - B. Greenwood Participants will learn about the various available genomic tests and their implementation in clinical practice and research.

8:30-9:15 Prostate Pathology for the Non-Pathologist - T. van der Kwast This session will provide participants with a review of Gleason scoring and cellular architecture.

9:15-10:00 Case Interpretation Patient A - T. van der Kwast and D. Hansel Premium and Standard registrants will have a seat at the USCAP 18-head microscope to review pathology on Patient A and Patient B.

10:00- 10:15 Break

10:15- 11:00 Case Interpretation Patient B - T. van der Kwast and D. Hansel Premium and Standard registrants will have a seat at the USCAP 18-head microscope to review pathology on Patient A and Patient B.

11:00 – 11:45 Panel Discussion: MRI in Prostate Cancer Management This expert panel will be moderated to highlight the components of a successful MRI-based prostate cancer program to help participants establish programs in their own communities.

11:45-12:00 Q&A

Learning Objectives

Review the literature regarding evolution of biopsy strategies
Describe mpMRI image acquisition pulse sequences in the context of PI-RADS scoring
Plan an MRI-guided biopsy using MRI findings
Assess targeted cores for histologic Gleason score
Discuss implications of targeted biopsy in genomic classifier use

Target Audience
The target audience is the multidisciplinary prostate cancer management team:
GU pathologists
Medical Oncologists
Radiation Oncologists
Radiologists (Diagnostic and Interventional)
Urologists

Upon completion of this educational activity, learners should be able to:
Discuss the role of MRI in prostate cancer management
Describe biopsy strategies and their benefits and drawbacks
Analyze human prostate tissue acquired with targeted in-bore MRI guidance
Evaluate discordant imaging and pathologic findings
