This advanced multidisciplinary course, jointly organised by ESTRO, ESTS, ESSO aims at promoting an integrated approach to the diagnosis and management of lung cancer. The goal is to individualise the patient treatment approach based on  clinical presentation, prognostic factors, tumour extent and the patient. In the last decades, we have seen major technical and clinical improvements both for the diagnosis (including the different imaging procedures) and the treatment (surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and targeted therapies) for this very common and aggressive tumour, with clear benefits for the patients.

The course will be very interactive through the integration of lectures, debates and cases discussions and definitely multidisciplinary with a programme outlining the different treatments for lung cancer from evidence based medicine to  on-going research. The faculty will include chest physicians, radiologists, medical oncologists, thoracic surgeons and radiation oncologists.


A draft programme is available here.  Please note it is subject to change.
