(9 votes, average: 2.11 out of 5)

Dr. Peter Bach is the first author on a new JAMA analysis of the benefits and harms of using low-dose CT screening  for lung cancer. The American College of Chest Physicians and the American Society of Clinical Oncology requested the systematic review to assist them in drawing up a clinical guideline.

Join us in discussing who might most benefit from being offered such screening, and what work remains to be done.
