Room 516C-E  08:15 - 10:15 Moderators:  Tom Scheenen, Piotr Kozlowski

Skill Level: Basic to Advanced

Session Number: TU-03

A combined educational and scientific session will present the state of the art in new acquisition techniques followed by an example and then describe how post-processing improves the performance and value of prostate MRI with two examples of novel post-processing

Target Audience
Body radiologists, MRI physicists and engineers, and image processing scientists.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Identify new image acquisition techniques that may be clinically available; and
- Explain how image post-processing improves performance and adds value.


Overview of Image Analysis for Prostate MRI
Kirsten Selnæs
Prostate cancer is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers worldwide and multiparametric MRI is an important part of the diagnostic work-up of prostate cancer patients. Suggestions for standardization of acquisition and interpretation of the images are provided in the PI-RADS v. 2 system, which is increasingly used in clinical practice. New approaches for image analysis, where quantitative features are extracted from the images, allow for the quantitative and multidimensional nature of image data to be exploited. Various machine learning approaches has been used in a wide range of applications within evaluation of prostate mpMRI.
