Prostate Cancer Screening

 

Lecture Description

The most common non-skin cancer among men in the U.S., prostate cancer can be difficult to catch early. With this lecture, we will talk about screening methods, such as MRI and MRI- ultrasound targeted fusion biopsy as a risk stratification tool for men at risk for prostate cancer. For men who undergo radiation treatment, we will also touch on which ones might consider utilizing hydrogels. We will also discuss the nurse’s role in prostate cancer screening and care.

Lecture Objectives:
  • Demonstrate the risks and benefits of PSA screening for prostate cancer.
  • Identify the role of MRI and MRI-ultrasound fusion biopsy in men at risk for prostate cancer.
  • Understand the role of hydrogel in radiation treatment for prostate cancer.
  • Understand the role of hydrogel spacers in radiation treatment for prostate cancer.
