Researchers develop priorities for interventions to address health disparities in lung nodule management

Lung nodules are commonly found on diagnostic and screening computed tomography (CT) scans of the chest. Approximately five percent of individuals with lung nodules will ultimately receive diagnoses of lung cancer the leading cause of cancer death in men and women in the US and globally. Furthermore, lung cancer survival strongly depends on the stage of the cancer at diagnosis thus timely evaluation of lung nodules is key to achieving good long-term outcomes.
