Attendees will have ample time to network with leaders in the field, participate in panel discussions and navigate complicated cases. Key clinical topics will include the use of biomarkers and modern imaging technologies in the management of early stage prostate cancer as well as advances in the multidisciplinary approach to patients with high-risk, locally advanced, relapsed non-metastatic, and metastatic prostate cancer. Applications of new therapeutic agents, cutting edge radiation technology, combined modality strategies and evolving minimally invasive urologic surgical approaches will also be discussed.
