72nd Annual Meeting of
the Northeastern Section of the AUA

October 1 - 3, 2020
The Westin Charlotte
Charlotte, North Carolina

Educational Needs

Urologic abnormalities can present with a myriad of clinical symptoms and signs. Accurate differential 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, minimally invasive, and 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.
