The 31st Annual Perspectives in Urology: Point Counterpoint will bring together leading experts in urology, medical oncology, and radiation oncology to discuss and debate the latest topics in men’s health, general urology, and genitourinary cancers. This annual interactive conference will offer topical lectures, pro/con debates, and interactive panel discussions. Topics include LUTS, localized and advanced prostate cancer, bladder cancer and immunotherapy, upper tract cancer management, renal cell carcinoma, MRI and imaging, and other urologic topics.

The goal of PCP31 is to address key questions on practice-changing developments in these topics, and to examine the next generation in diagnosis and treatment. The conference’s format includes not only didactic lectures, but also debates, point-counterpoint discussion panels.
