These two old mates join us for a "robust discussion" on the role of prostate MRI in the early detection of prostate cancer!
Dr Ben Davies, Professor of Urology, University of Pittsburgh, and Dr Matt Cooperberg, Urologic Oncologist at the University of California, San Francisco, certainly have differing views on the value of MRI in the early detection of prostate cancer. This was most evident on twitter after Matt et al (Andrew Vickers and Sigrid Carlsson), penned a piece in European Urology recently which was pretty negative about MRI.
No holds barred here as Ben has a crack at Matt's enthusiasm for genomic testing, and his scepticism about MRI. Plus some observations about disclosures.... got to tune in!!! A classic.
Plus we're now posting some GU Cast episodes on Youtube. See links below. This was a particularly good one to watch!!!
