AM2018 EDU36 How to Incorporate MRI and PET Imaging Into Clinical Practice for Prostate Cancer Management

Panel moderators will provide a clinical overview with cases to frame the session.

The speakers are experts in prostate imaging and will:

  1. Provide overview of their technology, including availability, shortcomings and upcoming advances
  2. Discuss use of each imaging modality in three scenarios:
  1. Diagnosis/staging/risk stratification;
  2. Restaging after local therapy and biochemical recurrence; and
  3. Monitoring for response after systemic therapy.
  1. Example discussion points - how does mpMRI staging change risk categorization? Is hemeMRI for LN involvement helpful/being utilized? Should MRI fusion biopsies become standard of care and in what population? NaF and/or F-choline PET and SPECT therapy – how to apply technology in initial staging, after biochemical response? How do radiation oncologists assess quality of these advanced imaging modalities?

Target Audience

The meeting is designed to meet the interests of radiation oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncology residents, nurses, radiation therapists,  pathologists and diagnostic radiologists.

Learning Objectives

  • Apply advanced imaging technologies (MRI, PET, SPECT) to appropriate medical scenarios.
  • Describe upcoming advances in prostate cancer imaging.
