Abstract/Full Text “Unless randomized trials can demonstrate some value to low-risk groups, LDCT screening should remain targeted only to heavy smokers,” the authors write.

From Your Site Articles The researchers found that after the introduction of LDCT screening, the incidence of early-stage (stages 0 to I) lung cancer in women increased more than sixfold, from 2.3 to 14.4 per 100,000 population. For late-stage (stages II to IV) lung cancer, no change in incidence was observed (absolute difference, 0.6; 95 percent confidence interval, –0.5 to 1.7). Virtually all the additional cancers detected represent overdiagnosis, the authors said, because the early-stage cancers were not accompanied by a concomitant decline in late-stage cancers. Mortality remained stable, but five-year survival more than doubled from 2004 to 2013, because of increased detection of indolent early-stage lung cancers.
