Screening

In this interview we discuss the recent CMS decision to cover low-dose CT screening for lung cancer in patients who fit specific criteria.

This review looks at the current data and guidelines for thoracoscopic resection of stage I NSCLC and discusses the potential for limited lung resection in patients with the disease.

Smaller early-stage tumors may lend themselves to less radical lung parenchymal sparing resections or no surgery at all.

A state of equipoise now exists for various surgical options in the treatment of early lung cancer, underscoring the need for shared decision making.

A retrospective analysis suggested that a declining proportion of patients with lung cancer would meet the criteria for undergoing low-dose CT screening.

Women in routine gynecologic care expressed willingness to extend screening intervals and use cytology alone or Pap-HPV cotesting if recommended by a physician.

Conservative management of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grade 2 is an appropriate treatment option for women aged 25 years and younger.
