Full Programme  

This second edition Masterclass in Imaging of Prostate Cancer is a highly commended one-day teaching course which will highlight current imaging techniques, image interpretation and pitfalls in imaging prostate cancer.  

Learning Objectives for this course:

  ·  To understand the prostate patient’s journey from suspected cancer to the advanced disease state using the framework of de nable clinical states.
  ·  To know in detail the pathologic states, problems of categorisation and clinical needs of patients in each clinical state in the prostate cancer pathway.
  ·  To understand how imaging can help meet clinical priorities and so promote the personalisation of care in the advancing prostate cancer pathway.
  ·  To show how next generation prostate imaging (multiparametric MRI & MR-directed biopsies) and whole body assessments (whole body MRI & PET/CT) with clinical biomarkers, create opportunities to support and re ne management pathways of patients.

A stimulating and engaging learning experience – reviewing cases with the experts!

The ICIS Interactive series is designed as an advanced cancer imaging course for Radiologists, who would like to gain deeper understanding into the imaging of specific cancers through case-based learning. The courses in this series have been rated excellent by many participants.

Limited to 20 delegates per classroom, equipped with individual imaging workstations, this workshop–style teaching will provide participants with a hands-on stimulating and highly interactive learning experience.

Four 1.5 hour sessions will each commence with a lecture followed by a stimulating, interactive and often lively mentored case review of 8 - 10 cases on the workstation.

A comprehensive workbook to reinforce learning is provided for each delegate to guide participants through the cases, with each case chosen to illustrate specific learning points.  

By the end of the day, all participants will have benefitted from mentored case-based learning of 35 – 40 cases, each chosen with specific learning points.

Detailed workbook and course material to take home.

A certificate of attendance will be emailed to participants on completion of the course. 

Event postponed to due to the pandemic, we will reschedule as soon as we are able.

Please note that spaces are limited to 40 participants and will be sold on a first come first served basis. Book early to avoid disappointment!

In line with government advice, we have worked closely with the venue, Imparando in the city of London, to ensure the following measures have been put in place:

  • 2 meter distancing between desks.  Each participant has their own desk and workstation.
  • Gloves, masks, disinfectant sprays and wipes will be made available in each classroom.
  • All classrooms have independently controlled air conditioning (AC) systems with fresh air room pumps called VAMs. These VAMs pump external fresh air through a particle filter into each room and exhaust stale air out of the building. 
  • All of Imparando's AC systems are subject to a complete service and rigorous cleaning process every six months. A deep clean of all AC systems was undertaken on 10 June 2020; all filters within all units have been treated to maximise filtration and ensure maximum purification of air. All VAM heat recovery units are on full by-pass, ensuring that 100% fresh air is being drawn into the facility, with 100% extract air being expelled out of the building, avoiding the use of the heat recovery modules. 
  • Lunch served as a packed lunch at your desk, to avoid communal lunch rooms. Coffee and teas are available from the refreshment area, which has 'one way traffic' systems in place.15 hand sanitation points around the Imparando venue, with “automatic” alcohol based gel dispensers, with posters detailing the correct sanitisation etiquette/behaviour required by all, throughout the facility.
  • While always fastidious about cleaning at the Facility, this has been elevated to the next level. Deep-cleaning of all rooms, furniture, and all public areas is regularly undertaken... using alcohol, or alcohol based, cleaning materials.
  • Brand new pens provided to each delegate.
  • Imparando staff are fully equipped with protective materials (masks/goggles/overalls/) to be worn as necessary. Disposable gloves are already in regular use.
  • Delegates actively encouraged to speak up should they feel unwell.  An "isolation room" has been identified for the most extreme of circumstances, and all staff have been given instruction on what to do should someone fall ill, or show any symptoms of the virus.
