Prof Fréderic Lecouvet - Saint-Luc University, Brussels, Belgium

Prof Fréderic Lecouvet speaks to ecancer at the 2019 EORTC Groups Annual Meeting (EGAM) about the early systemic treatment of oligometastatic disease to improve patient outcomes.

Prof Lecouvet also mentions the detection of early metastatic lesions and how detection quality can vary according to the type of imaging used.

As the relationship between the early detection of oligometastatic disease and patient outcome is yet to be determined, Prof Lecouvet believes large-scale imaging trials must be conducted to investigate this.
