Study Uses CT Scans to Find Lung Cancer (ABC 7 TV)

Lung-cancer patients, especially if they are smokers or ex-smokers, may be helped by a new screening method that relies on genetic (DNA) screening to identify predispositions for lung cancer, and then uses computed tomography (CT) scans of patients with a higher risk of lung cancer in an attempt to spot lung cancer in its early stages. The earlier that lung cancer can be identified, the better the patient's chances of beating it. At least, that's the hypothesis posed in the REACT clinical trial underway at El Camino Hospital Mountain View. Watch this video, produced by ABC-7 TV, on the subject.
