Where to access mpMRI to the PROMIS standard

PROMIS is the minimum standard for mpMRI. There are no gold stars for merely being PROMIS compliant.

In fact we have had reports from leading Consultant Urologists that a lot of mpMR scans and the reports are of poor quality even though PROMIS complaint. If you only spend time and maybe money on one thing, get the best mpMR scan reported by the best Uro Radiologists

Star system for rating mpMRI facilities and reporting

As mpMRI and excellent reporting, are so critical to accurate diagnosis, we have developed a star system to help readers choose the best sites to have an mpMRI along with the best reporting.

Centres can have up to a maximum of 5 stars. Stars are awarded for the following:

2 stars - equipment or overall rating for mpMR scan and report

The facility uses a 3 Tesla (3T) MRI system such as a Siemens Vario or a Philips Ingenia system. The alternative, that would be not be awarded two stars are 1.5 Tesla (1.5T) MRI systems

1 star rating

The facility uses a modern 1.5T system from suppliers such as Siemens or Philips which do not require an Endorectal coil

1 star rating

The scans are reported using the Concensus paper multi media format

1 star rating

The scans use the Consensus Paper Protocol (T2,DWI aith high B value, DCE)

1 star rating

The scans are reported by a Uro radiologist who reports more than 100 mpMRI scans per year and regularly attends NHS Prostate MDTs

Note: The HCA PACS system, the database that stores scans and Radiologists reports, does not support structured multi media reports. Therefore even though scans are reported by expert Uro radiologists, they do not qualify for 2 stars.

There are 3T MRI sytems at the HCA Wellington hospital in Hampstaed and HCA London Bridge Hospital, but we do not know if those facilities offer mpMRI for prostate cancer diagnosis.
