The Mediterranean IV thoracic oncology symposium

It’s not too late to register for the upcoming Thoracic Oncology Symposium in Catania, Italy.  The symposium is being held April 6th and 7th and is sponsored by the University of Catania and Policlinico University Hospital.

This year’s topic is “Surgery for “advanced” lung and esophageal cancer: New horizons or a false dawn?”  Lectures include a presentation by Dr. Migliore on HITHOC for M1 lung cancer, a discussion on the use of hyperthermia, as well as several lectures on the use of VATS in advanced lung cancer and a segment devoted to esophageal cancer that includes the presentation of research findings by Dr. Toni Lerut based on findings from 3000 esophagectomies.

The full program and registration information can be seen Here.  Potential registrants may also contact Dr. Migliore at  mmiglior@unict.it

A guest post on last year’s conference is viewable here.
