Abstract

Screening for lung cancer using low-dose CT has already been implemented in North America following the results of the National Lung Screening Trial. Outside North America, clinicians and researchers are addressing issues that may have a major impact on the success of screening programmes by reviewing results of existing trials and by designing new research and pilot programmes. This review summarizes the work that has been done to try to answer the remaining questions and highlights potential barriers which may affect screening uptake and cost-effectiveness.
