This highly practical two day course provides an update on the use of mp MRI transperineal and transrectal biopsies in prostate diagnostics.

At Guy's Hospital, we’re proud to have developed a practical, pathologically-friendly Transperineal Sector Biopsy (TPSB) protocol which preferentially targets the peripheral zone by sectors and requires 24 - 32 cores only. This course will provide practical instruction of the TP sector biopsy protocol with US stations and the use of biopsy phantoms

Join us for on Thursday 9 to Friday 10 October to discover more - particularly if you’re considering starting TP biopsies or if you’re currently involved in carrying-out TP biopsies (i.e. nurse practitioners, theatre nurses, consultants, registrars, pathologists and radiologists). 

Course highlights:

  • Live cases of transperineal sector biopsy with expert commentary and guidance
  • Pathological processing and reporting
  • TPSB in clinical practice
  • The Guy’s Experience of MRI-US Fusion Targeted Biopsies
  • Faculty of experts led by Consultant Urologist Mr Rick Popert and Netty Kinsella, Advanced Nurse Practitioner
  • CPD points awarded
