Video: Genetic Testing in Prostate Cancer

Christopher J. Kane, MD, Professor and Joseph D. Schmidt, MD Presidential Chair in Urology, discusses challenges facing genetic testing for patients with prostate cancer.

According to Dr. Kane, "The technology often outstrips the ethics and the clinical precision of what we do with the data." Although physicians can acquire a great deal of genetic data, they are still unsure of how to apply that data clinically.
