From the Editor
Welcome to Volume 3, Issue 2 of Everyday Urology – Oncology Insights. This edition’s cover story by Phillip Koo, MD, Imaging Controversies for Localized and Advanced Prostate Cancer explores the challenging topic of imaging modalities for Prostate Cancer. He discusses the use of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) as well as positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT), C-11 Choline, and 18F-Fluciclovine for both localized and advanced prostate cancer disease management. Dr. Koo also reviews the ability of scoring systems, such as the Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PIRADS) as well as similar tools to enhance stratification assessments and interdisciplinary communication.
