Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Results from The National Lung Screening Trial published in The New England Journal of Medicine showed a 20 percent reduction in lung cancer deaths among high-risk patients who were screened yearly with low-dose CT scans of the chest, when compared to patients screened with standard chest X-rays. An annual screening can find cancer at an earlier stage, when it is easier to treat.
