SESSION TITLE: Lung Cancer II

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

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

PURPOSE: The National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) provided evidence that screening with low-dose CT (LDCT) in a select population, for three consecutive years, reduces lung cancer mortality by 20 % compared to a screening chest x-ray, with an overall decrease in mortality of 7%. Lung cancer screening was started at our hospital in September 2012. The program also involved providing the patients with a brochure for smoking cessation and referring motivated and interested patients to “Freedom from Smoking” sessions. Reports of the effect on the smoking cessation rate in participants of lung cancer screening are lacking in the literature.
