Frontiers in Urology

What is happening in Urology today?

Shahrokh F. Shariat, Head of the Department of Urology, initiated the meeting „Frontiers in Urology“ in December 2017 and invited international pioneers and experts to talk about current treatment options of urological disease including Yair Lotan, Ganesh S. Palapattu, Arkadiusz Miernik and Domenico Veneziano.

The program focuses on key clinical topics in the management of urological diseases including lithiasis, sexual health, voiding dysfunction and oncology. Renowned researcher presented emerging data and focused on recent practice-changing developments that are altering the diagnostic and therapeutic landscape.[1]

Michael J. Marberger annual meeting

On the 15th of December 2017, the 3rd Michael J. Marberger annual meeting took place, too. Clinicians and scientists were updated on the breakthroughs of 2017 by state-of-the art lectures. The meeting was structured as an intensive, interactive, half-day educational program to bring international experts together to discuss Frontiers in Urology 2017.

The program included three main sessions focusing on “Vanguards in Uro-oncology”, “Heinz Pflüger – a pioneer and statesman” and “Vanguards in Endo-urology”.[1]

Markus Hartenbach, expert in nuclear medicine, is part of our oncology study team. In his lecture, he presented the improved diagnostic methods in prostate cancer with PET/MR and emphasised the dual biomarker concept of our institute. In long term, this should highly contribute  to a better diagnosis and the possibility to change and adapt  treatment according to the results of scans and other parameters.

As a little bonus, this video shows a very informative overview and many interviews with the speakers and organisers.
