MRI Study Says Spiral CT screening Can Detect Lung Cancer Early

Robert A. Smith, PhD, American Cancer Society director of screening, responds to a new study that concludes annual spiral CT screening can detect lung cancer that is curable.

“The findings reported by the I-ELCAP are encouraging and add to the knowledge base that is building related to the value of screening for lung cancer. This is a solid, well established program that has a long track record of international leadership in developing the algorithms for screening and the management of small lung lesions detected on CT. The study shows that use of a powerful imaging tool, i.e., spiral CT, finds lung cancers when they are very small, and when prognosis is measurably better than when tumors are larger and advanced[…]
