Audiovisual Course on New Technologies in Urology

Today I have received a copy of the fourth volume of the Audiovisual Course on New Technologies in Urology. A training programme sponsored by Pfizer and supported by the Spanish Urological Association. I already contributed for volume I with a video and a chapter on PVP - Photoselective Vaporization of the Prostate. In this volume IV I have published an article and a video on Cryosurgical ablation of prostate cancer. This is an interesting video, it includes images of the 4D transrectal ultrasound monitorization of the procedure, a new approach we performed at the Instituto de Cirugía Urológica Avanzada (ICUA), in Madrid.
This training course will be provided for free to all Spanish urologists. The editor is one of my colleagues at the ICUA, Dr. Ignacio Castillón. He was trained as a laparoscopist in L.A., USA. 90% of the content in this audiovisual course is related to laparoscopy.
