Dr Gilberto Lopes - University of Miami and the Miller School of Medicine, Miami, USA

Dr Gilberto Lopes talks to ecancer at the 2019 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about the rise of cancer worldwide through low and middle income countries.

He explains that risk factors such as tobacco smoking and urbanisation are contributing to a much larger incidence of cancer in low and middle income countries.

Dr Lopes discusses the importance of accurate cancer diagnosis in order to improve prognosis and how the implementation of PET CT scans is vital to this.
