      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      1. Best chance for lung cancer cure is early stage.

      2. Low-dose CT scanning of high-risk patients reduces relative risk of death from lung cancer by 20%.

      3. LDCT could cause harm as well as benefit:

                  Morbidity and mortality from testing and procedures.

                  Financial toxicity.

                  No substitute for smoking cessation.

      4. Implementation must involve a multidisciplinary team.
