PURPOSE: To describe the frequency of incidental findings on low-dose CT scans (LDCT) for lung cancer screening and testing related to these findings.
METHODS: We conducted a retrospective chart review of a random sample of patients who participated in the Cleveland Clinic Lung Cancer Screening Program from April 1, 2015 through March 4th, 2016. Reported findings other than pulmonary nodules from the structured report of the LDCT scans were categorized by organ system and type. The downstream investigations that occurred as a result of these incidental findings, including consultations, other diagnostic imaging and procedures were recorded.
