This special series gives an overview of current evidence and addresses a number of relevant questions related to the implementation of lung cancer screening. We specifically have a close look at the target population, the role of the radiologist in lung cancer screening, diagnosis and management of screen-detected nodules in Asia and Europe, the current role of sublobar resection, implantation of screening programs and finally, the psychological impact of lung cancer screening.
