2 monthes ago - By Healio
Complications after invasive diagnostic procedures for lung abnormalities occurred twice as often in the real-world setting than in clinical trials that served as the basis for adoption of lung cancer screening with low-dose CT, according to results of a retrospective cohort study.
These complications also resulted in high downstream costs.
“The rates of complications estimated in our study reflected rates that are likely to be found in the community with the implementation of low-dose CT screening at population level,” Ya-Chen Tina Shih, PhD, chief of the section of cancer
