With the release of the survival results from the NELSON lung cancer screening trial there is now additional evidence that low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) screening leads to a reduction of lung cancer mortality in high-risk individuals. These results clearly show that LDCT screening has to be implemented in daily routine. However some questions like the most efficient screening intervals, duration of screening or the most appropriate participant selection are still not finally answered. This article provides a view on lung cancer screening from an oncologist’s perspective.
