Screening

A prospective study found that a bronchial airway gene-expression classifier improved the diagnostic performance of bronchoscopy for lung cancer detection.

A Swedish study found that 3D tomosynthesis screening detected 40% more cases of breast cancer compared with traditional digital mammography.

The American College of Physicians Best Practices lay out criteria for when to begin screening, screening intervals, and when to stop.

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