Thesis: Methods and validation of module measurement in a lung cancer screening
Promotor(s): prof. M. Oudkerk
Faculty: Medical Sciences
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Current data on lung cancer screening are not sufficient to support screening for lung cancer with any method. The results of randomized trials of screening with low-dose CT-scans are expected to better inform lung cancer screening decisions.
The NELSON lung cancer screening trial is a randomised controlled low-dose CT lung cancer screening trial in the Netherlands and Belgium.
This thesis focuses on the validation of volume measurement and the reading strategy in the NELSON lung cancer screening trial.
