Does it matter what’s in the bladder?

Yes it does

You can find both polyps and cancer but also keep an eye open to find bladder stones. The surgeon  needs to know if there should be any bladder stones, because if a robot assisted surgery is planed, the stones are to be removed first. If the should fall into the abdomen during surgery it could cause complications such as inflammation. Stones  could look like these, like an old floating mine.

Good prostate reading.

Making a survey…

When guidelines are to be made, the visions and ideas of how things should be are easy.

Just dream!

But to make a dream come true.. that is hard work.

So I need to make a survey to get an overview of where we stand.

……that is the work for today.

How should you measure a lesion?

According to the Guidelines

( https://www.acr.org/-/media/ACR/Files/RADS/Pi-RADS/PIRADS-V2.pdf )

“…….report the largest dimension of a suspicious finding on an axial image. If the largest dimension of a suspicious finding is on sagittal and/or coronal images, this measurement and imaging plane should also be reported. If a lesion is not clearly delineated on an axial image, report the measurement on the image which best depicts the finding….”

and use the dominant sequence:

“…. for the PZ, DWI is the primary determining sequence ………and for the TZ, T2W is the primary determining sequence……”

Or for more info join the prostate courses

Have a nice week-end
