Lung cancer screening with low-dose CT – Danish and international results
Lung cancer is the cancer type that causes the largest number of deaths in Denmark. With advances in medical imaging and widespread use of Computed Tomography (CT), it is possible to detect even small abnormalities in lung tissue. This has led to a great interest in lung cancer screening with low-dose CT and launching of randomised screening trials worldwide. This paper gives an overview of the current lung cancer screening trials in Denmark and internationally and focuses on main lung cancer findings and mortality results.
