Prostate web site offers health information, resources

The site includes the latest information on prostate cancer, BPH, and prostatitis; and a comprehensive library of tools and resources. Tools, intended for physicians to download for their own use, include slide presentations, case studies, animations, screening tools, and a dictionary of terms. Physicians visiting the site can also take online continuing medical education courses for credit.

The site recently won the gold award for medical communications in the National Health Information Awards program, which recognizes the nation's best consumer and medical health information materials and programs.

The camera heads' small size and multiple focal lengths allow for improved control and less fatigue during procedures, according to the company.

The design also enables both image and telescope rotation without loss of image orientation. Featuring 14-mm and 16.8-mm focal lengths, the cameras offer brighter images and improved documentation of still and moving images, because 100% of available light enters the system.
