BTOG distributed this EORTC survey to our members and the resulting article has just been published:

Diversity of brain metastases screening and management in non-small cell lung cancer in Europe: Results of the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer Lung Cancer Group survey



  • This EORTC survey found that European BM management is not according to European guidelines.
  • BM screening is not uniform, prognostic classifications are not often used, and MUT + NSCLC patients receive more intensive local treatment.

  • Efforts in harmonisation of management of BM should be pursued by cancer societies.

  • For MUT + NSCLC patients, specific BM guidelines and trials are required.
