Oncourology Department

What progress do you expect in diagnosis and treatment?

In diagnostics - molecular, genetic diagnostics, image fusion. In treatment - to increase a number of laparoscopic operations. Now they reach about 30% of all operations, but we believe that we can exceed number of laparoscopic operations up to 50% in future.

The Lithuanian Ultrasound Association, together with the NCI and other partners, organises two events per year - the international scientific and practical conference “Ultrasound Diagnostics” and international scientific and practical
conference “Ultrasound Diagnostics Summer School: Theory and Practice”.
