Many of us have read in the news about low-dose computed tomography (CT) screening to detect lung cancer. And many questions have surfaced. How effective is it? Who should get screened? The American Lung Association has released new interim guidelines to help physicians, their patients and the public in their discussions about lung cancer screening.

Early detection of lung cancer can increase survival rates. Call the Lung Helpline at 1-800-LUNGUSA or talk to your doctor about lung cancer screening.
