Prostate Cancer Awareness – Current Trends in Prostate Cancer [Video]

Dr. Clayton Lau, chief, Division of Urology and Urologic Oncology at City of Hope, a leading-edge cancer research and treatment organization, discusses how prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET scans significantly improve prostate cancer detection and treatment. He talks about single-port robotic prostatectomy that improves recovery time and how prostate surgery is increasingly becoming an outpatient procedure with same-day discharge.#CityOfHopeAt City of Hope since 2006, Clayton S. Lau, M.D., specializes in minimally invasive approaches to urologic oncology and reconstructive urology. He has performed over 3,500 robotic and laparoscopic procedures. He has also trained numerous surgeons in robotic surgery throughout the U.S. He is an international expert in robotic surgery and has been invited to lecture and perform robotic surgeries internationally.Dr. Lau is known for the close, professional relationship he establishes with his patients. He goes the extra mile to make sure they know everything they need to know about their urologic malignancy treatment options – and that includes getting a second opinion.“Second opinions are very important for any patient who has been diagnosed with cancer,” he says. “I see about 20 to 30 second opinion patients per month.”

Painful bone metastases are common in advanced prostate cancer. Physicians often order treatment with strontium- 89left({ }^{89} mathrm{Sr}right), a radionuclide with a strong affinity for bone tissue. A patient is given a sample containing 4 mathrm{mCi} of { }^{89} mathrm{Sr}. a. If 20 % of the { }^{89} mathrm{Sr} remains in the body after 90 days, write a function of the form Q(t)=Q_{0} e^{-k t} to model the amount Q(t) of radioactivity in the body t days after the initial dose. b. What is the biological half-life of { }^{89} mathrm{Sr} under this treatment?Watch the full video at:https://www.numerade.com/questions/painful-bone-metastases-are-common-in-advanced-prostate-cancer-physicians-often-order-treatment-with/Never get lost on homework again.
