Upcoming Events

The 30th International Conference on Screening for Lung Cancer

Saturday, May 17, 2014 to Sunday, May 18, 2014
Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
New York, New York
United States

Mission

The broadest mission of these Conferences is collective pursuit of understanding the issues surrounding early diagnosis and early treatment of lung cancer. Starting with the Early Lung Cancer Action Program (ELCAP), which evolved into the International (I)-ELCAP, the focus has always been on practice-relevant research. CT screening for lung cancer continues to be implemented throughout the world and guidelines are increasingly being developed by many organizations, most recently, the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF). The focus of this conference is on the research needed for further development of policies by clinical entities (professional societies, medical institutions, insurance companies) and by public (government) ones to address the benefit of the screening and concerns about its potential harms.
