The Fifth International Conference on Screening for Lung Cancer
Location: Weill Medical College of Cornell University
1300 York Avenue, New York NY 10021
Friday, October 26, 2001 to Sunday, October 28, 2001
The broadest mission of these Conferences is the collective pursuit of avant-garde understanding of the issues surrounding screening for lung cancer, the broadest subissues being early diagnosis and early intervention. Any given Conference focuses on issues that are particularly topical at the time. This time, two fresh developments lead to the principal missions for the Conference. For one, the I-ELCAP protocol for early diagnosis has been available for scrutiny and pilot application; and the corresponding mission is to pursue consensus on this protocol or on amendments to it. For another, fresh evidence strongly indicates that the sub-solid (part-solid and non-solid) nodules that present as 'ground-glass opacities' in CT images are more commonly malignant than solid ones; and this prompts the mission of pursuing consensus on priorities in the development of practice-relevant characterization of sub-solid nodules as to both imaging and pathology, and issues of intervention need to be re-examined as well.
