By bringing together all the skills required for the overall care of lung cancer, as well as tumors of the pleura and the mediastinum, at Institut Curie and the Institut Mutualiste Montsouris, the Chest Center ensures that all patients have access to innovation at all stages of the disease, from screening and diagnosis to treatment and follow-up. Patients also have access to the medical environment of both structures and a cutting-edge technical platform for medical imaging, biopathology and radiotherapy.

What is the Chest Center?

The Curie-Montsouris Chest Center is a center of excellence for patients suffering from lung cancer and other chest diseases, whether with tumor or not. By pooling our skills and expertise from the two Institutes, we provide seamless care, from screening to diagnosis, treatment and follow-up.

Each stage of treatment benefits from a multi-disciplinary approach, bringing together all the specialist practitioners to achieve individualized treatment that incorporates all relevant therapies and innovations. The patient files are discussed in a multidisciplinary consultation meeting (RCP) attended by all practitioners at the Chest Center (pneumologists, oncologists, radiotherapists, chest surgeons, radiologists, anatomopathologists, nuclear physicians, anesthesiologists, etc.).

The institute is also involved in teaching and research, both basic and clinical. It offers patients the opportunity to access the latest innovations (medical or surgical) and to take part in clinical trials.
