Masterclass in Imaging of Prostate Cancer


ICIS Interactive - Masterclass in Imaging of Prostate Cancer

A stimulating and engaging learning experience

This highly commended one-day teaching course will be limited to 40 participants, each with their own imaging workstation and content delivered through lectures and hands-on case-based learning.

Each ICIS interactive course is designed to provide the best educational experience, achieved through:

  • An expert international faculty drawn from the ICIS Fellowship and other invited speakers
  • Mentored review of 35-40 cases on workstations, each case chosen with specific learning points
  • A workbook to reinforce learning

Masterclass in Imaging of Prostate Cancer is a new one–day teaching course in the highly commended ICIS interactive series, which will review PI-RADS interpretative guidelines for multiparametric prostate MRI for disease detection. The roles for multiparametric prostate MRI in the management of low to high risk prostate cancer will be highlighted.

Possible cause of common dementia found, opening avenues for treatment

Published: Thu, 30 Oct 2014 14:05:21 GMT

A major cause of dementia has been potentially discovered, scientists report. In the type of dementia studied, there is damage to the white matter (nerve fibres) of the brain apparent on computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of older individuals.

Novel ultrasound technology to screen for heart conditions developed by engineers

Published: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 18:56:44 GMT

Engineers have determined, for the first time, the impact of a ring-shaped vortex on transporting blood flow in normal and abnormal ventricles within the human heart, and have developed a novel ultrasound technology that makes screening cheaper and much easier, making it possible to reach a large number of people and even infants.

Brain abnormalities found in chronic fatigue patients

Published: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 12:41:18 GMT

An imaging study has found distinct differences between the brains of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome and those of healthy people.

Sensors used to monitor dangerous hits on football field

Published: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 01:38:13 GMT

In football, a tackle can supply 100 G’s of force or more, well above the amount that can cause a concussion and more than 10 times the force of an F-16 jet roll maneuver. Now, researchers are using the helmets of Gator football players to help measure the force of on-field hits as part of ongoing efforts to better understand and prevent concussions and treat them before they cause lasting damage.

New technology shows promise for delivery of therapeutics to the brain

Published: Tue, 28 Oct 2014 18:54:37 GMT

Researchers have created “a tool for blood-barrier-brain disruption that uses bursts of sub-microsecond bipolar pulses to enhance the transfer of large molecules to the brain.” According to the authors, the current medical use of chemotherapy to treat brain cancer can be inefficient because of the blood-brain-barrier that impedes the delivery of drugs out of blood vessels and into the tumor.

Tomosynthesis improves cancer detection in women with dense breast tissue

Published: Tue, 28 Oct 2014 14:12:24 GMT

As of October 2014, 19 states have enacted laws requiring women to be directly informed if they have dense breasts and would benefit from supplemental screening. However, the recommended type of supplemental screening for women with dense breasts remains unclear. With 15 additional states considering similar laws and federal legislation introduced, physician scientists investigated the potential impact of supplemental screening for women with dense breast tissue.

Preventative action prior to brain surgery: Ultra-high-field MRI reveals language centers in brain in much more detail

Published: Tue, 28 Oct 2014 12:23:57 GMT

It is now possible, for the first time, to demonstrate that the areas of the brain that are important for understanding language can be pinpointed much more accurately using ultra-high-field MRI (7 Tesla) than with conventional clinical MRI scanners. This research helps to protect these areas more effectively during brain surgery and avoid accidentally damaging it.

Ultrasound guides tongue to pronounce 'R' sounds

Published: Mon, 27 Oct 2014 15:57:03 GMT

Using ultrasound technology to visualize the tongue’s shape and movement can help children with difficulty pronouncing “r” sounds, according to a small study. The ultrasound intervention was effective when individuals were allowed to make different shapes with their tongue in order to produce the "r" sound, rather than being instructed to make a specific shape.

Brain development in utero observed by researchers

Published: Mon, 27 Oct 2014 12:52:17 GMT

New investigation methods using functional magnetic resonance tomography (fMRT) offer insights into fetal brain development. These "in vivo" observations will uncover different stages of the brain's development. A research group has observed that parts of the brain that are later responsible for sight are already active at this stage.

New hope for potential prostate cancer patients

Published: Sat, 25 Oct 2014 19:25:43 GMT

It has been more than 30 years since the last major advancement in prostate cancer screening technology, and the latest advancement is now available in the United States. It is estimated that 2014 will see more than 240,000 new cases of prostate cancer, and more than 29,000 deaths from the disease.
