Extract

Screening for lung cancer in appropriate high-risk groups with low-dose CT (LDCT) has been demonstrated to be effective and is now part of many practices and existing evidence-based guidelines., Effective clinical implementation of these guidelines is an ongoing process but is well under way., In this issue of CHEST, Tremblay et al provide additional useful insights into another potential method for lung cancer screening, specifically the use of autofluorescence (AF) bronchoscopy.
