Extract

The “Multimodality Therapy of Chest Malignancies” course was a tremendous success. I was personally pleased by the quality and scope of the faculty presentations and registrants’ participation. Since the first course in 1990, we have advocated the concept of surgeons, radiotherapists, and medical oncologists working together in the primary evaluation and treatment of patients with thoracic malignancies. What was a concept has become reality in a number of major medical centers across the United States. The advent of multidisciplinary clinics for the evaluation of patients with primary malignancies is providing improved care and will undoubtedly lead to better outcomes for patients. The latest advances in each field reach patients quickly in a multimodality approach.
