Given that the focus of our column is clinical, however, we prioritized true ST-segment deviation that meets diagnostic criteria
Relevant topics for study of the nonmalignant urological diseases in adults or children could include, but are not limited to 1) diagnostic tools and instruments that can asses the extent and physiological parameters of disease and evaluate disease progression or response to therapy; 2) improved diagnostic criteria
for diseases and disease subcategories; 3) accurate epidemiologic data on diseases in various ethnic and racial groups; 4) validated strategies to access early detection of disease, for disease progression and for response to therapy; 5) novel approaches to preventing the onset of disease or preventing the progression of established disease; 6) studies of the effect of the treatment of comorbid disorders on the symptoms, progression, and morbidity of urological diseases.
Therefore, the Department will spend more than $1 million on a "scientific review" of PTSD diagnostic criteria
