PLCO trial: chest radiograph screening does not reduce lung cancer mortality

Added: Friday 4 November 2011

New results from the large, randomised Prostate, Lung, Colorectal and Ovarian (PLCO) Cancer Screening Trial. Researchers found that annual chest radiographs to screen for lung cancer did not reduce lung cancer mortality. The results support the findings of the National Lung Screening Trial and are seen as confirming expectations rather than setting new ones.
