The best take-home messages from the 2012 American Urological Association annual meeting in Atlanta


Here are the take-home messages from the 2012 AUA annual meeting-cutting-edge research findings in 15 areas of clinical urology.

Atlanta-The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force's announcement that it was sticking with its grade D recommendation on prostate cancer screening came at the midpoint of the 2012 AUA annual meeting here. Conversations everywhere, from the scientific sessions to hotel lobbies, quickly turned to analysis and opinion of the controversial announcement.

Although it hardly seemed so at the time, other news came out of the meeting in the form of cutting-edge research findings in a broad array of clinical areas. Beginning here, Urology Times presents "The Best of AUA," our report on the meeting's take-home messages, which were pared down to 15 topics this year in a shortened meeting format. Messages identified by our editors as particularly high interest are highlighted in red.
