Can we translate the benefits of lung cancer screening to the clinic?
It widely agreed that we need to identify better methods of detecting lung earlier. There has been great data suggesting the use of low-dose CT scans for screening. However, can the benefits of this s... Author: VJOncology Added: 01/30/2018 (Source: Oncology Tube)

Ultrasonography versus computed tomography scan for endoleak detection after endoluminal abdominal aortic aneurysm repair
An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a life threatening condition and patients might need lifelong monitoring after treatment. Ultrasonogaphy is sometimes used for this and a new Cochrane Review from June 2017 looks at its accuracy. The review was done by a team from Italy and Kathy Mahan from the Cochrane Neurosciences group, also based in Italy, tells us what they found. (Source: Podcasts from The Cochrane Library)

Head Trauma
Minor head trauma usually does not cause significant brain injury. To be safe, clinicians often obtain head CT scans to ensure no major injury is present. For minor head trauma (Glascow coma scale 13-15), the risk to benefit ratio for head CT is usually not in favor of getting CT scans. When the Canadian head CT rule or New Orleans Criteria are negative, there is a very small risk for missing a significant brain injury. Joshua Easter, MD from the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Virginia who authored a JAMA Rational Clinical Examination article on this topic is interviewed as is Frederick Rivara, from ...

JAMA: 2013-03-20, Vol. 309, No. 11, Author in the Room™ Audio Interview
Interview with Phillip M. Boiselle, MD, author of Computed Tomography Screening for Lung Cancer. Summary Points: CT screening reduced lung cancer-specific mortality by 20% in a large randomized trial of a high-risk population. CT is associated with a high false-positive rate, with associated risks and costs associated with follow-up CT and the potential for more invasive diagnostic procedures. Physicians should consider discussing CT screening with their high-risk patients who meet criteria in published guidelines. (Source: JAMA Author in the Room)

Summary Points: Three randomized trials examined computed tomography (CT) screening for lung cancer’s effect on lung cancer mortality—one showed a benefit, the other 2 did not but were smaller studies. CT screening does not appear to reduce mortality from causes other than lung cancer. There are still a lot of uncertainties regarding the risks and how to mitigate them. (Sourc...

Interview with Peter B. Bach, MD, author of Computed Tomography Screening and Lung Cancer Outcomes. Summary Points: 1. Screening and other prevention approaches involve subjecting very large numbers of people to an intervention, with the expectation that a few will benefit, but most will not (as they would have never developed the condition anyway). 2. In general, screening for diseases such as cancer will uncover some reservoir of abnormalities that appear to be precursors to clinical disease but are not yet causing disease. 3. We really have no evidence to support screening for lung cancer right now with any technology. ...
