EUROPEAN SOCIETY OF UROGENITAL RADIOLOGY
8th Prostate MRI Teaching Course
June 22-23, 2018 / Lille, France
The 8th edition of the ESUR prostate course was organized in France, in the Lille Faculty of medicine during two sunny summer flanders days (friday 22 and saturday 23 of June 2018). The demand was high : numerous registrations could not be accepted. Overall, 270 delegates, 27 faculty members and 11 industy leaders shared views on how to use prostate MR imaging to better diagnose, biopsy and guide treatment.
High-quality, rich and stimulating talks were given by the most experienced european experts, puncutated by unique and interactive sessions of case review on individual tablets (iPads), virtual multidisciplinary sessions. The local organization committee was glad to host the delegates in great conditions, and allow them to interact with 11 industrial partners, who brought the best of imaging and interventional radiology devices for demonstrations.
The main keypoints of the discussions during the scientific sessions were a) PI-RADS scoring and its future directions, b) the rise of bi-parametric MR imaging for detecting less unsignificant cancers, and c) optimal patient risk stratification and new diagnostic pathways.
We ended the meeting with tons of new ideas and concepts to apply in the upcoming years, and richer of numerous exchanges of views, warm interactions. Also, it was my pleasure to meet lots of young radiologists, and even old friends from everywhere, willing to give their best in prostate imaging.
Again, thanks everybody for your commitment, and making these days so fruitful,
Pr Philippe PUECH (MD, PhD)
