ACR 2015 The Crossroads of Radiology

ACR2015VM02 - Lung Cancer Screening: From Science to Practice

May 17, 2015 10:00am ‐ May 17, 2015 12:00pm


Since lung cancer represents the number one cause of cancer-related mortality in the United States and throughout the developed world, the role of radiologists will be critical in the effective and responsible implementation of CT-based lung cancer screening. Such screening is the only method identified to date that allows for the preclinical detection of lung cancer such that appropriate intervention significantly reduces lung cancer mortality. The session will also include discussion of the National Lung Screening Trial and the role of ACRIN® in conceiving and conducting this pivotal trial.
