Event description

Description

Leonard S. Marks, MD, Professor of Urology, urologist, and researcher, discusses prostate cancer and the state of the art of treatment and surveillance at all phases of the disease. The use of MRI imaging (to visualize localized prostate cancer), and ultrasound guided biopsy (via the device Artemis) at UCLA is changing the way we manage prostate cancer. Focal therapy research is very active at UCLA, involving multiple disciplines (radiology, pathology, and bioengineering, as well as urology). He discusses "active surveillance,” an organized follow-up for men believed to have a ‘low-risk’ prostate cancer, an important approach to prostate cancer that is designed to improve the quality-of-life. He also presents current more aggressive treatment methods for higher risk prostate cancer and new treatments for advanced cancer.
