Why not join the RSM Cardiothoracic section for a TED-style meeting to address the cutting-edge solutions and technologies needed to cure lung cancer on Friday Nov 11th?

“In a series of TED-style talks, this meeting will take us on the journey for the lung cancer patient of the future. Each talk will cover a range of topics, from how to build awareness of the bold steps, team-work, clinical networks and technologies needed to cure many more lung cancer cases to presenting the latest cutting-edge minimal access techniques such as utility-incision free lung surgery, micro portal surgery, subxiphoid surgery and robotics, presented through highly interactive and video presentations. The meeting will also look at the health economic, evaluation and business implications. The meeting will be of interest to cardiothoracic surgeons, chest physicians, oncologists, and those working in public heath, new technologies, global and international health sector.”

The speakers are an international panel of experts, including Mr Kelvin Lau of Barts Health, as well as surgeons, radiologists and oncologists from Europe, Canada and the US. Talks include, “Diagnosing (very) early disease. How screening will become cost and clinically effective with novel biomarkers”; “Biopsy and percutaneous intervention”; “Pushing the boundaries with SBRT (stereotactic body radiation therapy)”; “Utility incision free thoracic surgery”; and “Robotic thoracic surgery”.

The usual RSM fees apply, with cheaper rates for members.
