Prostate Cancer
What is the PI-RADS Score?
By: Dan Sperling, MD
The tremendous international interest in 3T multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) brought with it the challenge of how to
standardize the reporting of prostate image analysis among radiologists around the globe. The European Society of
Urogenital Radiology (ESUR) proposed a numeric system called the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System,
or PI-RADS for prostate cancer detection. It is based in an earlier system for breast imaging.

Dr Marcin Czarniecki

PI-RADS (Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System) refers to a structured reporting scheme for evaluating the
prostate for prostate cancer. It is designed to be used in a pre-therapy patient.

The original PI-RADS score was annotated, revised and published as the second version, PI-RADSv2 6 by a steering
committee with the joint efforts of ACR, ESUR, and AdMeTech Foundation.

Dr. Sperling’s presentation on MRgFUS
As a leading authority on state-of-the-art MRI and MRI-guided treatment interventions, Dr. Sperling discussed his
revolutionary treatment called MRI Guided Focused Ultrasound, or MRgFUS. This therapeutic approach to healing diseased
areas in the body uses no surgery or radiation. Instead, using MRI scans to plan and guide treatment, sound waves are
aimed at the affected area from different directions. These beams pass harmlessly through healthy tissue until they meet,
where they precisely ablate (destroy) the target tissue. MRgFUS is safe and effective. It is done on an outpatient basis
to treat essential tremor (ET), cancer that has spread to the bone and other targeted conditions. Recovery is very rapid
and most patients have no pain and few to no side effects.
