dc.description.abstractNeither routine chest x-ray (with or without sputum cytology) nor low-dose computed tomography (CT) have been proven to reduce mortality when used for lung cancer screening, although low-dose CT screening does identify lung cancer at an early stage in high-risk patients (strength of recommendation: B, based on heterogeneous cohort studies). Large studies of both imaging approaches are ongoing.eng
