Conference paper
Part of the Syllabus book series (SYLLABUS)


In the Western world, the most frequently encountered pelvic diseases are neoplasms. Urinary bladder and prostate cancer are the most commonly seen diseases of the male pelvis by Radiologists. Therefore, this course will focus on these diseases. As MR imaging is the most promising technique in visualizing these tumors, the emphasis will be on this imaging modality.
