Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Urology Volume 36, Issue 23: Radiation Exposure/Urethral Complications.
The goals of this program are to improve diagnosis and treatment of stone disease and posterior urethral complications in patients with prostate cancer. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Conduct a frank discussion about exposure to radiation with a patient who has renal stones, encompassing lifetime risks, the need for accurate diagnosis, and the statements recently issued by the American College of Radiology.
2. List indications for computed tomography in patients with renal stones.
3. Discuss alternative imaging techniques and emerging technologies aimed at decreasing the dose of radiation required to diagnose and treat patients with urinary tract stones.
4. Discuss diagnosis and treatment of postoperative and postradiotherapy complications in the posterior urethra in patients previously treated for prostate cancer.
5. Compare the prognosis of posterior urethral complications encountered after surgery vs radiation therapies for prostate cancer.
The original programs were presented by Brian H. Eisner, MD, Assistant Professor of Surgery (Urology), Harvard Medical School; Assistant in Urology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA, and Anthony R. Mundy, MD, Professor of Urology, University College London Hospitals, London, England.
