The Seminar aimed at providing proper and multi-faceted information on the innovations in cancer treatment for confined and locally advanced prostate cancer. The Organizing Committee was made up of Chairman P. Kechagias and members F. Angelakis, A. Ntounis and M. Skouteris.

Special mention was made to the contribution of robotic surgery and brachytherapy in the treatment of prostate cancer, as well as the pathoanatomical problems associated with the disease.

Samadi on robotic prostatectomy and Professor N. Stone on brachytherapy. Anatomical Pathologist Professor P.
