Prof Virginie Westeel - University of Franche-Comté, Besançon, France

Prof Westeel talks with ecancer at the ESMO 2017 Congress in Madrid about the results from the IFCT-0302 trial looking at the necessity of CT scans in NSCLC post-surgery follow-up. 

Results from the trial did not show a difference in overall survival (OS) between patients who received computed tomography (CT) scans as part of their follow-up, and those who did not. The findings suggest regular CT scans, which many guidelines recommend, may not be necessary.
