011IC - Multi-Parametric Ultrasound in the Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer

Friday, May 18
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Location: MCC WEST, 2009

Transrectal ultrasound is critical to biopsy guidance for the diagnosis of prostate cancer. However, ultrasound has the ability to improve diagnostic accuracy and may perform as well as multi-parametric MRI in identifying suspicious lesions. This course will familiarize participants with the multiparametric aspects of transrectal ultrasound including gray-scale ultrasound, color and power Doppler ultrasound, elastography, contrast-enhanced ultrasound as well as computer-enhanced transrectal ultrasound as modalities which alone or in combination may improve the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
