BXTAccelyon is dedicated to raising awareness of LDR brachytherapy (LDR-B) and the full range of treatment options available to prostate cancer patients. As such, over the last twelve months, we have attended many international events and conferences and the latter part of this year is set to follow suit.
So, here is what’s coming up for BXTAccelyon around the world!
The 70th German Society for Urology (DGU) conference will take place on the 26th – 29th September in Dresden. The event offers an extensive programme under the motto "Tradition, Innovation and Responsibility". We’ll be in attendance to hear all the latest news and innovations in Urology.
The PrecisionPoint™ Transperineal Access System revolutionises the methodology for obtaining prostate biopsies. This medical system takes full advantage of the transperineal path to more thoroughly sample all regions of the prostate including those difficult to access with the transrectal approach.
Training dates will take place on a Friday and alternate Saturday morning at the end of each month. Due to the practical nature of the course places are limited to 8 delegates. There are two available options:
● Option 1 is a 1.5-day workshop, course suitable for delegates who wish to receive a full understanding of transperineal biopsies.
● Option 2 is a 1-day workshop course suitable for delegates who already have comprehensive experience of standard transperineal biopsies.
The next 2018 workshop dates are as follows:
Friday 28th September 2018
Friday 23rd November 2018
Friday 26th- Saturday 27th October 2018
