Summary of "Lung Cancer Patient Perceptions of the Value of an Outreach Thoracic Surgical Clinic."

While specialty outreach clinics have been associated with improved outcomes and access to care, their role for patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has not been described. We sought to characterize perceptions of the utility of a specialty outreach clinic among patients with suspected NSCLC.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgery performed on the thoracic organs, most commonly the lungs and the heart.

A developmental anomaly in which a mass of nonfunctioning lung tissue lacks normal connection with the tracheobroncheal tree and receives an anomalous blood supply originating from the descending thoracic or abdominal aorta. The mass may be extralobar, i.e., completely separated from normally connected lung, or intralobar, i.e., partly surrounded by normal lung.
