Evidence demonstrates that androgen deprivation (ADT) before radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer (PCa) has no benefits on strong clinical endpoints while having significant side effects as well as having hidden and real costs associated with the administration and management of side effects. Both European and American guidelines recommend against neoadjuvant ADT prior to surgery yet these practices appear to remain.

The objective of the first IMAGINE pilot was to measure adherence to the EAU’s guidelines on ADT use before surgery for prostate cancer in European countries via a pan-European collaboration with National Urological Societies. This e-course presents the results of the IMAGINE pilot and the project's next steps.
