Prof Usha Menon - University College London, London, UK

Professor Menon speaks with ecancertv at ASCO 2016 about screening strategies to detect early stage ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer was responsible for over 14,000 deaths in the US last year, but is often not diagnosed in stage I-III.

With regular screening, such as annual ultrasound and multimodal sample collection, Dr Menon reports early diagnoses and intervention from a patient pool of over 200,000 respondents.

Further analysis is ongoing to determine overall survival benefit.
