Among other topics, he will cover the role of PSA testing in Europe, the role of biopsies and mpMRI scanning, genomics, how AS was developed in Europe, how AS works within the Dutch healthcare system, and what the future holds in terms of liquid biopsy and artificial intelligence.

DR. CHRIS BANGMA has worked closely with his colleagues Drs. Laurence Klotz and Peter Carroll and like them has been dubbed “the father of Active Surveillance for prostate cancer.” The three doctors currently are launching a global action plan for A.S. creating an online platform accessible for patients everywhere to help determine if they are candidates for A.S.
