Detection of very early cancerous changes has the capacity to save many lives and reduce the burden of disease for cancer patients and treatment costs for healthcare systems. This is the vision of the Early Cancer Detection Consortium.

Systematic reviews and economic modelling are underway to underpin future advances.
