USPSTF Updates Recommendation for LDCT Lung Cancer Screening
Excerpt from the Article:
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) has revised its existing lung cancer screening recommendations with two major changes – its new guidance lowers screening age and incorporates patients with a shorter smoking history.
Published today in JAMA, the new recommendation now calls for patients between ages 50 and 80 who have 20-year pack histories to undergo annual low-dose CT (LDCT) screening for lung cancer. This is a change from the 2013 recommendation that referred to patients ages 55 to 80 with 30-year pack histories.
The USPSTF gave this recommendation a B grade, indicating it is based on, at least, fair evidence that it can positively impact outcomes and should be applied to eligible patients.
