The Tenth International Conference on Screening for Lung Cancer
Weill Medical College of Cornell University
1300 York Avenue
New York, NY 10021
Friday, April 23, 2004 to Sunday, April 25, 2004
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.
As always, the Conference will provide an update on research and practice of screening for lung cancer, including updates of I-ELCAP protocols and the results on over 25,000 individuals who have had baseline and repeat screening. The Ninth Conference focused on questions of overdiagnosis, staging of small early lung cancers and ancillary findings of other smoking-related diseases in the context of CT screening for lung cancer. The Tenth Conference will focus on the future of I-ELCAP at large and particularly the need for research directed to early intervention as a supplement to diagnostic research. It will also introduce the topic of 'guidelines' in the sense of what can be said to individuals who are asking their physician for advice about CT screening for lung cancer.
