Following consistent interest in Prostate MRI, A/Prof Jyoti hosted this popular event, designed primarily to assist other radiologists in establishing services in this emerging modality.

This year the course was held in two locations – Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, and Auckland Hilton. Both events were filled to capacity, with local and international speakers contributing to the program.

A/Prof Jyoti commented: “We now have a means of identifying and staging Prostate Cancer with a non-invasive procedure. For many men, there is a broad window of opportunity for treatment if we detect the lesion before it spreads to surrounding structures. Each year we are seeing stronger evidence that Prostate MRI is assisting in improving patient outcomes. It is vital that these services are readily available, and performed to a high standard, so that we can counter the second largest cancer killer in men.”

A/Prof Jyoti continues to offer diagnostic MRI and MR Guided Biopsy prostate services at the UMI MRI Suite, located in Calvary Hospital, Bruce.
