A group of radiologists and urologists has made a new set of recommendations to improve the quality of prostate MRIs. These recommendations have been published in the journal European Radiology. "It is important to get international agreement on what a good MRI is, because the new guidelines prescribe that a good MRI is the best method to detect prostate cancer," says first author Maarten de Rooij and last author radiologist Jelle Barentsz.
A panel of 44 radiologists and urologists agreed on three quarters of the topics including training, assessment and experience. The next step is to elaborate on these recommendations.
