9th International Symposium on Focal Therapy and Imaging in Prostate & Kidney Cancer

June 23, 2016 - June 25, 2016

Chaired by Professor of Surgery, Thomas J. Polascik, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina, USA in collaboration with AMC University Hospital, Amsterdam, The Netherlands and USC Institute of Urology, Los Angeles CA, USA. Much has transformed the landscape of prostate cancer over these last years. To start, there has been a growing recognition of the overtreatment of prostate cancer, with now a shift towards expectant management prior to consideration of radical whole gland therapy for select men with early stage prostate cancer. This understanding bodes well for focal therapy, as we have positioned it to be a minimally-invasive treatment that destroys the known area(s) of cancer while preserving a man’s continence and potency.

Intended delegates: pathologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, researchers, urologists, medical oncologists, biomedical engineers, trainees & nurses.
