Symposium Thoracic Oncology - Guidelines and Beyond

Over the past 5 years, since the founding of the Thoracic Oncology Center at the USZ, our knowledge of the biology of lung cancer has greatly improved. Lung cancer screening is on its way to become a reality and progress has been made in surgical techniques as well as with stereotactic radiotherapy of thoracic malignancies. Also, patients can profit from considerable advances in personalized therapy and immunotherapy leading to new therapeutic concepts.
