Scottsdale, AZ US
April 11, 2019 to April 14, 2019

Co-chaired by Nelson N. Stone, MD and Richard G. Stock, MD, the Southwest Prostate Cancer Symposium™ (SPCS) has been held in Scottsdale, AZ for 23 years. Formerly called the Scottsdale Prostate Cancer Symposium, this multi-day conference is intended for urologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, physicists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of prostate cancer. It will educate the attendees about advances in management of localized and advanced prostate cancer with a focus on imaging, technology, and training in the related devices.

The goal of this educational program is to equip urologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, physicists, and other healthcare professionals involved in prostate cancer care with the up-to-date clinical knowledge and tools they need to best treat their patients. The program aims to provide a technical update on all aspects of diagnosis and treatment of localized and advanced disease.

Internationally recognized experts in the management of prostate cancer will provide a technical update on all aspects of diagnosis and treatment of localized and advanced disease.

Diagnostic discussion topics will include genetic markers, prostate pathology, screening, advanced and emerging imaging technologies, and biopsy technologies. For localized disease treatment, this conference will cover active surveillance, hormone therapy, focal therapy, surgical approaches, and the role of testosterone in prostate cancer. Lastly, SPCS 24 will discuss topics regarding the treatment of advanced, metastatic, and castration-resistant prostate cancer.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for and will benefit urologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, physicists, and other health care professionals. It will educate the attendees about advances in management of localized and advanced prostate cancer.
