Prof James Brierley - University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada

Prof Brierly speaks with ecancer at AORTIC 2017 about the utility of cancer staging, and misconceptions in their use.

He discusses how screening, registry interrogation and tracking shifting disease progression can give accurate insights into disease burden and outcome, noting that harmonised understanding prevents any miscommunication when comparing data across regions.
