In November 2016, the SIG were also involved in a multi-SIG event on Advances in prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment. This event was supporting the Movember Foundation and was a unique cross-SIG meeting organised alongside the MRI, Oncology and Nuclear Medicine SIGs. One of the highlight of the day was an inspirational talk by Simon Lord, a prostate cancer survivor.
