Research studies from the Czech Republic and Slovakia led the best abstract presentations at the 15 th Central European Meeting (CEM) which ended today in Budapest, Hungary.
J. Stejskal and colleagues bagged the first prize from Karl Storz for their work on fusion of MR and transrectal ultrasound images in prostate cancer. Meanwhile, a study titled “Decision making protocol for the management of complex renal cystic masses according to the 10-years of clinical experience and meta-analysis of the current literature. Lesson learned from the multi-institutional analysis,” has won for P. Weibl and colleagues the first prize from Berlin-Chemie.
The Best Video was given to a submission on robot-assisted partial nephrectomy from the Czech Republic.
