Genitourinary Oncology Update 2021

 

Lecture Description

Genitourinary malignances will account for approximately 20% of newly diagnosed cancers in 2021. Recent research advances in prostate, bladder, and kidney cancers utilizing new biomarkers and imaging tools, radiolabeled therapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy and antibody-drug conjugates have led to new management approaches associated with significant improvements in patient outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe new PSMA-directed approaches in the imaging and management of patients with prostate cancer.
  • Review recent advances in systemic therapy for patients with muscle-invasive and metastatic bladder cancer.
  • Discuss the use of immunotherapy and targeted therapy approaches in the management of advanced kidney cancer.
