Circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) is released by most early stage and advanced cancers into the blood stream. As such, they hold potential for minimal invasive and serial testing to screen and monitor cancer progression. This presentation will review our current understanding of the ctDNA landscape, technologies that detect them, and implications for cancer care.
