In this video Prof Harry de Koning of the Department of Public Health announces 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.
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.
