SESSION TITLE: Lung Cancer I

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: Lung cancer screening with low-dose CT (LDCT) has been shown to decrease mortality in high risk patients. The United States Preventive Services Task Force recommends LDCT for patients age 55 to 80 with at least a 30 pack year history of smoking. Lung cancer screening in patients with a previous history of malignancy raises a complex set of issues. Patients with a previous history of malignancy may be at higher risk for developing lung cancer. Those with a history of solid tumors are also at risk of metastatic disease to the lung. It is unclear whether the same management strategies can be used in assessing nodules among these patients.
