Focal Therapy - Art Rastinehad

Art Rastinehad provides insight into the role of focal therapy in the treatment of prostate cancer. He begins the presentation with the evolution of prostate cancer care. He describes focal therapy in the context of the next significant opportunity in the treatment of prostate cancer once we have a positive biopsy and walks us through the why, the who the how and the where in defining focal therap...

Use of MRI to Risk Stratify Patients with Prostate Cancer- Simpa Salami

Simpa Salami, MD discusses the role of MRI in risk stratifying patients with prostate cancer. MRI has revolutionized the ability to detect aggressive prostate cancer but it is still possible that patients who have a negative MRI still have aggressive cancer. Up to 10-15% of patients may have aggressive prostate cancer despite negative findings on MRI. Dr. Salami addresses why these patients may ha...

Increasing Rates of Active Surveillance as the Standard of Care in Men with Low Risk Prostate Cancer- Matthew Cooperberg

They also d...

Incremental Value of 11C Acetate Over 68Ga-PSMA PET CT for Prostate Cancer Patients - Sirong Chen

The 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT has a high clinical impact for preoperative staging, restaging biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy, and treatment monitoring. Dr. Chen highlights the details of this trial with two objectives. They assessed 68 Ga-PSMA PET/CT in primary prostate cancer with different clinical risks and further studied the inclusion of 11 C-Acetate PET/CT to see if there was an in...
