Screening for Lung Cancer (2003)


  • The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care (CTFPHC) concludes that there is fair evidence to recommend against screening asymptomatic people for lung cancer using chest radiographic examination. (D recommendation)
  • The CTFPHC concludes that there is insufficient evidence (in quantity and/or quality) to make a recommendation as to whether spiral CT scanning should be used for screening asymptomatic people for lung cancer. However, other factors may influence decision-making. (I recommendation)
