CT Screening Banner
Overview

The CT Screening Symposium is a 2-day interactive, immersive, virtual event focused on lung cancer screening technologies and best practices. Using a mix of pre-recorded educational presentations and real-time expert discussions, as well as interactive live Q&A opportunities, the Symposium will address topics relevant to an international audience. Faculty will provide anecdotal experience and review current data to highlight successes and help remove barriers to increased adoption of more uniform and effective lung cancer screening around the world.

  • Increase your understanding of the current evidence for lung cancer early detection and screening, as well of international successes and challenges regarding implementation of screening programs 
  • Learn about treatment approaches for early screening-detected lung cancer and the role of biomarkers 
  • Interact with experts and colleagues from around the globe via live Q&A periods and chat 
  • Watch on your time and in real-time
