The Pneumology Unit collaborates with the I-ELCAP Early Detection Unit, where they perform the early diagnosis of asymptomatic lung cancer
Early Diagnosis of Asymptomatic Lung Cancer
The Early Diagnosis of Asymptomatic Lung Cancer programme is part of an international lung cancer project led and coordinated by Mount Sinai in New York in collaboration with the Arizona Biotechnology Institute.
The aim of the I-ELCAP Early Detection Unit is the early diagnosis of lung cancer in the early stages of the disease, allowing either for surgical treatment or a combination of less-aggressive therapies to be considered and improving patients’ chances of survival.
