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.
