Selection criteria for lung-cancer screening.
BACKGROUND The National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) used risk factors for lung cancer (e.g., ≥30 pack-years of smoking and <15 years since quitting) as selection criteria for lung-cancer screening.Expand

Overdiagnosis in low-dose computed tomography screening for lung cancer.
IMPORTANCE Screening for lung cancer has the potential to reduce mortality, but in addition to detecting aggressive tumors, screening will also detect indolent tumors that otherwise may not causeExpand

Evaluation of the Lung Cancer Risks at Which to Screen Ever- and Never-Smokers: Screening Rules Applied to the PLCO and NLST Cohorts
Martin Tammemägi and colleagues evaluate which risk groups of individuals, including nonsmokers and high-risk individuals from 65 to 80 years of age, should be screened for lung cancer using computedExpand

Application of Risk Prediction Models to Lung Cancer Screening: A Review
Globally, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death and is a major public health problem. Because lung cancer is usually diagnosed at an advanced stage, survival is generally poor. In recentExpand

Selecting lung cancer screenees using risk prediction models-where do we go from here.
The National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) demonstrated that low dose computed tomography (LDCT) screening could reduce lung cancer mortality by 20% in high-risk individuals. The United StatesExpand
