PROSTATE MRI 8th ESUR Teaching Course
June 22-23, 2018 / Lille, France

Welcome to Lille !

It is a great pleasure to organize the 8th annual european course dedicated to prostate MR imaging, endorsed by the European Society of Uro-Radiology (ESUR) in Lille. This is the second time that this workshop is held in France ; an honor and a big challenge.

Our mission is to teach you the best of current knowledge in prostate MRI acquisition, interpretation and reporting techniques, under the best conditions, and help you become at ease, or even better in prostate MRI for the diagnosis, staging and follow-up of prostate cancer. Basic and "hot" topics, like active surveillance, target biopsies, PIRADS, focal-therapy will be discussed. For that, we will ask the best specialists of France and Europe to expose their views, tips and perspectives, in short-format, but high-level talks.

This is a "workshop" : in addition to the courses, we will organize collective and individual interpretation sessions, opened to discussion. Thanks to our unique experience in this domain, we will be able to provide you fast and comfortable case-reading conditions by using individual high-quality tablets (iPads).

Lille is a middle-sized metropolis of France. It is at the crossroads of Paris, London and Bruxelles, and highly accessible by train or plane. You'll discover one of the nicest flanders old towns, welcoming people, pleasant living and locations, especially at this period of the year !
