November is Lung Cancer Awareness month, and the past few weeks have provided new details about utilization rates of low-dose CT screening, as well as how effective the scan is in reducing the number of lung cancer-related deaths. This week, Diagnostic Imaging spoke with Debra S. Dyer, M.D., chair of the American College of Radiology’s Lung Cancer Screening 2.0 Committee, about the challenges that exist to increasing utilization with high-risk populations and what radiologists can do to help bring more patients in for screening.
