The 12th International Conference on Screening for Lung Cancer
Hosted by the Screening Committee of the Japan Lung Cancer Society
At Nara - Ken New Public Hall, Nara, Japan
April 8, 2005 to April 10, 2005
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 results of research.
The 10th and 11th Conferences focused on the results on the diagnostic performance of the I-ELCAP protocol for CT screening and on alternatives to resection in early intervention.Another focus was 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 12th Conference will highlight the evaluation by the Japanese and I-ELCAP groups as to the benefit of CT screening for lung cancer.
