Northeastern Section of the AUA, Inc.
75th Annual Meeting
October 20 – 22, 2023
The Westin Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh, Pennsylviania

Educational Needs

Urologic abnormalities/diseases can present with a myriad of clinical symptoms and signs. Accurate diagnosis and disease management, which meets current standards of care, requires ongoing review of the presentations of various urologic abnormalities as well as the appropriate use of safe and cost-effective imaging modalities and various pharmacologic or operative management options. In addition, advancements in medical science and progress in management of various urologic diseases require basic and clinical research. Presentation and discussion of such peer-reviewed and Abstract Reviewer-selected summaries and results of investigations provide “cutting edge” updates for practicing clinicians and essential feedback to researchers on the practical applications and translation of their investigations to clinical practice.
