November 2019

For the Lung Cancer Awareness Month and along with its multistakeholder event on lung cancer screening at the European Parliament on 6 November, the European Society of Radiology joined forces with the European Respiratory Society (ERS) for greater visibility of Lung Cancer in the future “Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan” and put together a factsheet. The event addresses measures to strengthen our approach at every stage of the disease. As for the factsheet, it highlights the benefits of rolling out screening programmes for high-risk populations, the two organisations’ recommendations, answers to the criticisms surrounding the implementation of such programmes and what can be done at European Union Level.
