Prof Johan Vansteenkiste - Universitair Ziekenhuis, Leuven, Belgium

Prof Johan Vansteenkiste talks about staging procedures for patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and explains that for most patients a combination of imaging with PET and CT scans followed by endoscopic ultrasound is sufficient; however some patients will also require a surgical procedure to verify results. Prof Vansteenkiste outlines the key stages for patients, explains how this improved understanding of the patients’ condition allows clinicians to decide which treatment option is appropriate to each individual patient and discusses how beneficial this multi discipline approach can be on patient cure rate.
