Lung Cancer Screening Criteria
Lung screening LDCT scan results range from showing no disease to being suspicious for cancer. However, most suspicious nodules turn out not to be cancer.
A positive screening LDCT may require further testing to determine whether the suspicious finding is a lung cancer, which often is confirmed by a biopsy.
The USPSTF recommends annual screening for lung cancer with low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) in *adults aged 50 to 80 years *who have a 20 pack-year smoking history and currently smoke or have quit within the past 15 years.
