SESSION TITLE: Lung Cancer Screening in the Real World

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Slide

PRESENTED ON: Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 04:30 PM - 05:30 PM

PURPOSE: Early detection of lung cancer through screening with low dose CT (LDCT) has been well documented in large center studies, e.g. ELCAP, with limited stage lung cancer comprising 80% or more of new diagnoses. Little has been written on other effects of screening programs on overall patient wellness, including patient attitudes about lung cancer and effects on smoking habits. We report the results of a community hospital screening program on staging at time of detection, as well as the results of a patient survey on feelings, behaviors, and perceptions as they relate to participation in the program.
