OBJECTIVE We sought to determine the prevalence of defined abnormalities on surveillance computed tomography after complete resection for non-small cell lung cancer, as well as the nature and cost of further testing prompted by these abnormalities. We also sought to determine whether resectable metachronous lung cancer can be detected with surveillance scans. METHODS A retrospective analysis was performed of all patients who presented for follow-up in 2002 after complete resection for non… CONTINUE READING
