American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Session Code: PS325
Title: Precision Medicine in Surgical Oncology: What Every Surgeon Needs to Know
Date and Time of Session: Wednesday, October 25: 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Description: Advances in gene expression classifiers have enabled surgeons to safely predict non-malignant tissue avoiding surgery and associated health care costs. New diagnostics addressing bronchial and thyroid genomic classifiers will be presented. Participants will receive updates on the application of RNA-expression profiles in breast and colon cancer as well as genomic profiling in pancreatic, rectal and esophageal cancer. The panelists will discuss challenges inherent to tumor profiling in establishing these strategies in surgical standards of care.
