Abstract

In this report, we present expert opinion on the use of a standardized nomenclature and surveillance methodologies after focal therapy and partial gland ablation for localized prostate cancer. The panel recommends the use of the proposed nomenclature and follow-up protocols to generate reliable data supporting a broader implementation of focal therapy as a standard of care for select patients with localized prostate cancer.
