Association of a Lung Screening Program Coordinator With Adherence to Annual CT Lung Screening at a Large Academic Institution. Journal of the American College of Radiology : JACR. 2020 Feb;17(17). 208-215. PMID: 31499025 [PubMed]
Detection of early-stage lung cancer improves during subsequent rounds of screening with low-dose CT and potentially leads to saving lives with curative treatment. Therefore, adherence to annual lung screening is important. We hypothesized that adherence to annual screening would increase after hiring of a dedicated program coordinator.
