We are pleased to present sonography expert Robert DeJong, RDMS, RDCS, RVT for a discussion on the use of ultrasound for evaluating diseases of the prostate.

From those early days of bistable imaging to today’s fusion imaging technology, sonography has been an important part of evaluating the prostate gland. This lecture will look at the current role of sonography in evaluation of the prostate and take a peek at potential future diagnostic methods using ultrasound. (Approved for 1 SDMS CME credit)
