Lung cancer screening: Risk tool could predict eligibility for life-saving test

A new study by Cancer Council NSW, published in the International Journal of Cancer, has – for the first time in Australia – evaluated the performance of a lung cancer risk prediction tool, the PLCOm2012, to predict which current and ex-smokers are at the highest risk for developing lung cancer. In the future, the tool could help identify people suitable for lung cancer screening, and thus maximise the effectiveness of screening. Oncology News Australia, 10/05/17
