Extract

Introduction: Lung cancer is the leading cause of death among all cancers and is the third most common cancer in both men and women. Previous studies have shown that low dose CT (LDCT) screenings resulted in more unnecessary thoracotomies and ultimately offered no compelling data for or against LDCT screenings. This systematic review of randomized controlled trials is trying to determine whether new data was for or against lung cancer screening.

Method: Using the PubMed Library, we searched “low dose CT lung cancer screening” with criteria “controlled clinical trial” and “randomized controlled trial”. We set our article date limit from 01/01/1990 to 12/31/2016. We also referred to the Cochrane Systematic Review 2013 and followed up with smaller ongoing studies in Europe. From our search, we will be discussing the Lung Screening Study, the MILD trial, the DANTE trial, DEPISCAN study, the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST), the DANISH trial, the ITALUNG trial, and the UKLS pilot.
