MRI – the most important diagnostic tool for prostate cancer

Joining On Focus today is Dr Francesco Giganti, Associate Professor and honorary Consultant in Radiology at University College London.

Francesco is an acknowledged leader in researching imaging of the prostate, and in identifying new approaches to improve its accuracy in diagnosis and its effectiveness in treatment. He has co-authored over 200 publications reporting on investigations into multiple clinical, technological, and systemic challenges to prostate imaging, and his work has had, and continues to have, profound impact on clinical practice.

He’s here today to talk about how MRI has transformed the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer,  and what challenges need to be overcome to ensure that this transformational and continually evolving element of the diagnostic pathway is available and accessible to all men.
