Workshop: Prostate cancer: The magnetised needle, where does it point to?

Workshop Coordinator:
J. Richenberg, Brighton/UK
O. Rouviere, Lyon/FR
I. Schoots, Rotterdam/NL

The role of MRI in investigating those with suspected prostate cancer is established. The expert panel will debate on more controversial topics in biopsy decision-making:
•  upfront MRI in all men?
•  negative predictive value of MRI – how good? biopsy threshold PI-RADS 3 or 4?
•  when (only) MRI-targeted biopsy? when systematic biopsies?
•  risk stratification: pre-MRI and post-MRI?

The workshop will be lively and the audience will be expected to take sides!
