About Georgios Daouacher
Georgios Daouacher is chief physician in Urology at the Central Hospital in Karlstad and is responsible for prostate cancer. He is also responsible for the Standardized Care Process for Prostate Cancer and a representative of the respective RCC process group.
His research is about prostate cancer. He has previously published an article on postoperative incontinence after Radical prostatectomy in prostate cancer patients. He collaborates in an article with the same issue. He is a partner in a project where they evaluate MRI and genetic testing so-called Sthlm3 for prostate cancer diagnosis. He is participating in a project evaluating the effects of Organized PSA testing.
His doctoral thesis aims to evaluate radiological staging in high-risk prostate cancer patients before treatment. Radiological methods in question are MRI with and without functional sequences as well as acetate PET CT. The final sub-work evaluates the long-term outcome after curative external radiation therapy in men with medium and high-risk prostate cancer who have undergone limited, extended or no lymph node dissection.
Lymph node staging in high risk prostate cancer – evaluation of imaging techniques compared to histology from pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND) and long term evaluation of PLND in patients treated by curative radiation.
