Lung Cancer Screening Implementation: A Serial Discussion

I am very excited to tell you about an exciting new endeavor from the Thoracic Oncology Assembly.  We have created a series of short podcasts to be released serially over the coming weeks that will highlight important concerns and considerations surrounding lung cancer screening implementation. 

In these podcasts, Drs. Renda Wiener and Patricia Rivera join TOA's web editor, Chris Slatore, to discuss their thoughts on lung cancer screening implementation.  Their discussions were guided by the recent statements from the ATS and ACCP regarding screening with an added focus on screening issues that happen in the real world.  And unlike those written statements, you can learn something while still (safely) driving your car! 

Happy Listening!
