PROSTATE MRI 6th ESUR Teaching Course

June 10 - 11, 2016 / Berlin, Germany

New Course Structure: BASIC and ADVANCED Sessions

Prof. Dr. Bernd Hamm

Dear colleagues,


For patients suspected of having or already diagnosed with prostate cancer MRI has become an important tool for detection of cancer, biopsy planning, risk stratification, and treatment planning.


For the 6th ESUR Prostate MRI Teaching Course we will bring together internationally renowned experts from different specialties including radiology, urology, and pathology to lecture on basic principles of prostate cancer detection and treatment with a strong focus on prostate MRI. In addition, interactive discussions will focus on recent and potential future developments. In hands-on workshops practical skills can be trained under the supervision of experienced radiologists.


The program addresses those of you who are new to this imaging technique and interested in acquiring basic knowledge, as well as those of you who are already experienced in reading prostate MRI and looking for advanced input from experts and critical discussions.



We are looking forward to welcome you all this summer to enjoy the 6th ESUR Prostate MRI Teaching Course and the city of Berlin.
