Elbit Imaging Announces Insightec Treats First Prostate Cancer Patients in Clinical Trials

rostate cancer will be diagnosed in the US in 2010; and 900,000 new cases diagnosed globally, according to the World Health Organization. The annual spending in G7 countries (US, UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain and Japan) is estimated at 15 Billion Dollars.
