Scanning - why is it important to me?
Join us for an insightful session as we explore the advancements in prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment through modern imaging techniques. Gain valuable insights from a personal journey of a prostate cancer survivor who underwent a radical open prostatectomy and experienced the impact of urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction.
Discover how multi-parametric MRI (mpMRI) has revolutionized the initial diagnostic pathway and how PET scanning is surpassing conventional CT and MRI scanning techniques in assessing disease progression.
Consider the future where more sensitive scans, such as PET-CT and PSMA-PET, may replace conventional imaging methods and reflect on the challenges and opportunities associated with the implementation of these advanced techniques.
Hear from Stephen as he discusses his patient perspective and desire for early and accurate diagnosis, emphasizing the importance of tailored treatments as well as how modern imaging techniques are shaping the future of prostate cancer care.
