Prof Vincenzo Valentini – President of ESTRO

Prof Vincenzo Valentini talks to ecancer at ESMO 2012 in Vienna about the importance of collaboration between radiologists and medical oncologists.

 

Through a multidisciplinary approach, radiologists can look at evidence that colleagues produce in their fields and familiarise themselves with the new language of treatment and methodology.

 

Prof Valentini stresses to radiologists that understanding new drugs and compounds will allow for reduced toxicity, hypoxias, managing resistance, and even how radiation therapy can help with immunological response.
