Implementation of lung cancer screening

Implementation of lung cancer screening

Presented by: Prof. Harry de Koning

The Department of Public Health (ACE Screening & Prevention) is excited to announce the initiation of the first large-scale European multi-centered implementation of volume CT LUNG CANCER SCREENING in the Netherlands and 4 other European countries (through an 8 million EU HORIZON2020 Grant 4-IN-THE-LUNG-RUN of which professor Harry de Koning is the principal investigator). 

The trial’s main goal is to assess the relative safety of a personalized risk-based screening interval based on the result of the first baseline test result(s), but will during implementation investigate the effectiveness of tailored recruitment strategies, methods to integrate co-morbidity reducing strategies, and innovative methods like AI and biomarkers. It plans to initially enroll 26,000 high risk individuals.
