  • Friday, March 22, 2024

This webinar will delve into how prostate cancer screening has been performed to date and the latest clinical research evaluating new diagnostic tests. The featured speakers will also discuss the critical role artificial intelligence (AI) will play in combination with clinical and imaging tests to deliver sustainable, patient-centric screening pathways.

The session will begin with an overview of recent advancements beyond prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing, including the latest clinical evidence assessing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based tests. The featured speakers will then discuss the potential of AI for improving prostate cancer screening pathways and address the current PSA testing shortcomings and operational limitations regarding radiologists’ workforce. The webinar will also explore the scientific underpinnings of AI-based predictive algorithms, covering essential aspects such as algorithm development and practical deployment.

The discussions will extend beyond clinical research, explore avenues for patient advocacy, health economic evaluations and strategies for enhancing patient outcomes with the ultimate aim of establishing scalable and effective screening pathways for prostate cancer. The session will also provide insights into ongoing clinical studies evaluating diverse diagnostic modalities, thus offering a glimpse into the future of prostate cancer detection.

Register for this webinar today to gain valuable insights into the transformative potential of AI and image-based testing in the early detection of prostate cancer.
