Myopenia and myosteatosis: are they ready for incorporation into clinical staging systems?

Presentation Description

Radiological assessment of low skeletal muscle mass (myopenia) and density (myosteatosis) have been identified as potential predictors of postoperative complications, recovery and survival after oesophago-gastric cancer surgery. This presentation will provide a summary of the relevant evidence to date, pros and cons of available tools to assess muscularity and future direction of incorporating these measures into preoperative risk stratification tools.
