Abstract

Role of chest CT in early diagnosis of lung cancer is controversial now in terms of mortality reduction and possible harms of overdiagnosis and unnecessary radiation exposure. Also, the clinical characteristics of lung cancer on CT screening is not well known despite some studies. So we analyzed characteristics of lung cancers with low dose chest CT screening.
