Summary of "Lung Cancer Screening in the Community Setting."

Lung cancer has high incidence and high mortality burden particularly since it is typically diagnosed in later stages. The National Lung Screening Trial demonstrated a lung cancer specific mortality benefit in high risk current and former smokers with yearly low dose chest CT. Lung cancer screening is thus recommended but it is unclear if the results of the National Lung Screening Trial can be replicated in community settings.
