Article Title: Algorithms for prostate-specific antigen recurrence after treatment of localized prostate cancer
Abstract: Nomograms are devices that predict outcome probabilities for the individual patient. Herein we discuss their strengths and limitations, focusing on responses to several frequently asked questions about nomograms. We believe these tools are useful and necessary for patient counseling, follow-up scheduling, and clinical trial design and analysis.
