PURPOSE: The overall 5 years survival for lung cancer patients is approximately 16%, a survival advantage is noted for early stage lung cancer, with 5-year survivals up to 65%. However, only 10% patients are diagnosed when the primary tumor is resectable. Our trial was aimed to improve the early stage lung cancer detection rate using low-dose CT (LDCT).
