Dr. Henschke shares the lung cancer research information women should know.
We currently have a research project, which is supported by the Flight Attendants Medical Research Institute, which looks at the usefulness of CT, a single low dose CT scan for people who have never smoked because the question is really, “At what age should you have it? How often should you have it? What does it find out about other diseases?” And that’s a very important research topic that we are working on.
