Clinical Question:
Does screening high risk individuals with low dose CT (LDCT) result in reduced lung cancer mortality?

Benefit from screening for lung cancer with LDCT has been demonstrated in only one trial^ without a “usual care” group. The high number of false positives^ which require further^ sometimes invasive investigations^ is worrisome. Smoking cessation should remain the priority to decrease lung cancer mortality.
