Dr. Henschke describes where a woman should have her lung cancer screening performed.
A screening, just like for lung cancer, just like breast cancer, needs to be done at centers that have a multidisciplinary team that are familiar with screening processes because the quality assurance aspects of screening are very important. So, you should find a center that has experience; ask about that experience. That center also needs to follow up to see how well they are doing in the screening process.
