Thomas Newsom-Davis, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, discusses a session he chaired at the BTOG 2024 congress featuring four enlightening talks. Prof. Paul Van Schill introduced the 9th edition of tumour-node-metastasis (TNM) staging classification, highlighting its application in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), thymic tumors, and mesothelioma to refine prognosis by categorizing tumors into smaller groups. Dr Fiona MacDonald discussed systematic staging using endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA), emphasizing its impact on treatment planning for locally advanced disease. Prof. Matthias Guggenberger explored the role of stereotactic radiotherapy for bone metastases, emphasizing its potential in oligometastatic disease and as a palliative treatment. Prof. Mary O’Brien presented the Phase II REFINE study (NCT04913025), investigating de-escalation strategies for immunotherapy frequency and intensity in cancers, aiming to optimize patient care and resource utilization. This interview took place at the BTOG 2024 congress in Belfast, UK.
