The 11th International Conference on Screening for Lung Cancer
Hosted by The National Cancer Institute Regina Elena
At Instituto Patristico Augustinianum
Via Paolo VI, 25 - 00193 Rome, Italy
October 15, 2004 to October 17, 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 of research on and practice of screening for lung cancer, including updates of I-ELCAP protocols and interim results of research.
The Tenth Conference focused on the results on the diagnostic performance of the I-ELCAP protocol for CT screening and introduced the topic of what can be said about it to people asking their physicians for advice about CT screening for lung cancer; that is, about the likelihood that a particular round of screening would detect cancer in him/her, the likelihood that early intervention could cure such a cancer, and that (s)he would avoid death from another cause for a decade or whatever period. The Eleventh Conference will continue to focus on the latter topic and on alternatives to resection in early intervention, also addressed in previous conferences.
