Prediction of Lung Cancer Screening Eligibility Using Simplified Criteria.

08:00 EDT 12th July 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Prediction of Lung Cancer Screening Eligibility Using Simplified Criteria."

Lung cancer screening with low-dose chest CT decreases mortality for high-risk current or former smokers. An essential eligibility criteria, lifetime smoking intensity (cigarette pack-years) is poorly recorded in electronic health records (EHRs), which may contribute to the overall low appropriate utilization of screening.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Criteria to determine eligibility of patients for medical care programs and services.

An internationally recognized set of published rules used for evaluation of cancer treatment that define when tumors found in cancer patients improve, worsen, or remain stable during treatment. These criteria are based specifically on the response of the tumor(s) to treatment, and not on the overall health status of the patient resulting from treatment.

The identification of selected parameters in newborn infants by various tests, examinations, or other procedures. Screening may be performed by clinical or laboratory measures. A screening test is designed to sort out healthy neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN) from those not well, but the screening test is not intended as a diagnostic device, rather instead as epidemiologic.

Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.

Pre-planned studies of the safety, efficacy, or optimum dosage schedule (if appropriate) of one or more diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques selected according to predetermined criteria of eligibility and observed for predefined evidence of favorable and unfavorable effects. This concept includes clinical trials conducted both in the U.S. and in other countries.
