The uptake of shared decision making (SDM) for lung cancer screening (LCS) as required by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is suboptimal. Alternative models for delivering SDM are needed, such as decision coaching in the low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) setting.

For the first time in Moscow and Russia, a program of selective lung cancer screening has been implemented with a comprehensive approach, including organizational, management, medical, technical and e...
Lung cancer mortality has been found to decrease significantly with low-dose (LD) computed tomographic (CT) screening among current or former smokers. However, such a screening program is not implemen...
The performance of lung cancer screening with low-dose computed tomography (CT) (LDCT) in China is uncertain. This study aimed to evaluate the performance of LDCT lung cancer screening in the Chinese ...
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States; 148,869 lung cancer-associated deaths occurred in 2016 (1). Mortality might be reduced by identifying lung cancer at an early sta...
Malignancy prediction models based on participant-related characteristics and imaging parameters from low-dose computed tomography (CT) may improve decision-making regarding nodule management and diag...
Black men are disproportionately affected by prostate cancer, the most common non-cutaneous malignancy among men in the U.S. This randomized trial will evaluate the efficacy of a Community...
The present study is a randomized controlled trial of LDCT screening for lung cancer versus usual care. 6000 high-risk subjects (age 45-70) were recruited and randomized to the Active arm ...
The overall goal of this project is to test two strategies for implementing a shared decision making tool to be used by providers while talking to patients about lung cancer screening. Eig...
The primary objective of this study is to assess the effect of the decision aid on measures of decision-making such as knowledge, screening attitudes, decisional conflict, and screening in...
This study evaluates the feasibility of a clinical informatics system-based approach to lung cancer screening. Patients of a large academic medical center who may qualify for lung cancer s...
A graphic device used in decision analysis, series of decision options are represented as branches (hierarchical).
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.
A number of small lung lesions characterized by small round masses of 2- to 3-mm in diameter. They are usually detected by chest CT scans (COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY). Such nodules can be associated with metastases of malignancies inside or outside the lung, benign granulomas, or other lesions.
An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.

Lung cancer is the uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Originating in the lungs, this growth may invade adjacent tissues and infiltrate beyond the lungs. Lung cancer, the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women, is respons...
