Lung Cancer Detection with LDCT Linked to Lower Brain Metastasis Risk
Patients who have their disease detected with low-dose CT have a half-fold risk of brain metastasis than patients screened with other methods. Add a lower risk of brain metastasis to the ever-growing list of benefits associated with low-dose CT (LDCT) lung cancer screening. According to a study published June 3 in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology, patients who have their lung cancer detected with LDCT have half the risk of a subsequent brain metastasis than do patients whose disease is diagnosed via alternative methods.
