Charter day

This year's Urology session will include a section on Paediatric Urology, which will highlight current and future developments in this important and growing area of urological practice, and also include talks on cryptorchidism and hypospadias. This section will be followed by presentations on a number of key areas of current controversy regarding present and future management of localised prostate cancer in Ireland, include the role of MRI in diagnosis and staging and the hot topics of screening and robot-assisted surgery.

I am also pleased to announce that the prostate cancer session will be co-chaired by Dr. Jerome Coffey, Director of the National Cancer Control Programme in Ireland.

I would encourage all ISU members to make every effort to attend what will be a most informative and lively Urology session at the Charter Day meeting. I would particularly like to ask all Full members who are or potentially will be involved in robot-assisted surgery to take this opportunity to participate in the discussion.
