Poster Session 46

  • Location:
    Room Stockholm, North Hall (Level 1)
  • Chairs:
     M.G.K. Cumberbatch, Sheffield (GB)
     S. Füssel, Dresden Johannstadt Nord (DE)
     K.A. Tasken, Oslo (NO)
  • Aims and objectives of this session

    Investigations on circulating tumor cells have been widely used in prostate cancer biomarker studies. Further improvements in biomarker assessment include application of MRI. New technical tools will be presented in the session.

  • Poster viewing of 20 minutes. Presentations will take place on stage. Standard presentations are 2 minutes in length, followed by 2 minutes for discussion. Extended presentations (*) are 3 minutes in length, followed by 3 minutes for discussion.
