Imaging Bone (Flare) Responses in Advanced Prostate Cancer Presentation - Anwar Padhani

Details
Anwar Padhani presents at the Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference (APCCC) 2019 on imaging and flare responses when assessing patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). In his presentation, Dr. Padhani notes that bone scans/CT scans lead to poor confidence for knowing the true clinical states and assessing therapy benefits for bone disease in advanced prostate...

Credentialing Imaging as an Outcome Measure in Prostate Cancer - Lawrence H. Schwartz and Michael J. Morris

Details
Michael Morris, MD, and Larry (Lawrence) Schwartz joins Charles Ryan, MD in a conversation about credentialing imaging as an outcome measure in prostate cancer and its impact in clinical trials. They focus on the following questions: How do we credential images? How do we perform them? And how do we interpret them? Their conversation also focuses on determining progression-free survival (PFS) from...
