Extract

Lung cancer screening is a frequent visitor to the pages of CHEST, and this issue is no exception. The article by Jerome Reich (see page 329), “Improved Survival and Higher Mortality: The Conundrum of Lung Cancer Screening,” helps to remove some of the mystery behind the theoretical underpinnings of lung cancer screening. In doing so, the article provides a compelling case against the establishment of mass lung cancer screening programs at this point in time, be they with chest radiographs or helical CT scanning.
