The Lung Cancer Policy Network has launched the second edition of its interactive map of lung cancer screening implementation. This resource is a database that collates ongoing and completed clinical trials, implementation studies and organised programmes for low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) screening.
The aims of the interactive map are to facilitate the sharing of best practice and to guide policy development around using LDCT screening to detect lung cancer. Detecting lung cancer earlier by carrying out LDCT screening on healthy but high-risk people can help save lives and reduce the burden of lung cancer.
The new edition of the interactive map includes:
- new examples of LDCT screening, with a focus on the United States
- improved search filters that allow users to search entries by geographical region
- enhanced functionality, including the ability to compare studies/programmes
- an expanded choice of languages.
