Leaders from the medical, government, industry, and academic communities, among others, have unveiled a public awareness campaign to help spread the message about imaging technologies that may some day transform early detection and treatment of prostate cancer.

"While women today have access to life-saving mammograms, men lack accurate, accessible, and affordable diagnostic tools. It's time men had their own 'manogram' to save lives and quality of lives," said Faina Shtern, MD, a radiologist at Children's Hospital Boston, Harvard Medical School, and president and CEO of the nonprofit AdMeTech Foundation. "Advanced imaging technologies will transform prostate cancer detection, biopsy, and treatment."

Throughout the campaign, experts will help accelerate the development and implementation of imaging technologies for improved early detection, as well as review the latest advances in patient care, research, and development.
