The purpose of this session is to review the framework of PI-RADS V2 for standardization in image acquisition and analysis, and communication of imaging findings from the multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) of the prostate. Cases illustrating normal anatomy of the prostate, benign prostatic entities, and malignancies ranging from low-grade to clinically significant cancers will be discussed along with challenging cases with false positive and false negative imaging features. The session will also include an update on MRI-targeted biopsy of the prostate.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to:
  • Describe the principles of PI-RADS V2 to achieve the optimal imaging quality of mpMRI of the prostate and utilize the scoring system for image interpretation and reporting.
  • Recognize false positive imaging findings and understand the limitations of prostate MRI.
  • Discuss the role of MRI-targeted prostate biopsy in diagnosis of clinically significant prostate cancer.
