Mamta Ruparel publishes editorial in AJRCCM

Mamta Ruparel, a North East Thames trainee, and current member of the Lungs for Living Research Group at UCL, has published an editorial in the blue journal entitled “Fulfilling the Dream: Toward Reducing Inequalities in Lung Cancer Screening.


Mamta and Neal Navani, review evidence for low dose CT lung cancer screening and consider the reasons for differences in mortality from lung cancer in different racial groups. They examine the findings of a study by Tanner et al which demonstrated that black National Lung Cancer Screening Trial participants benefitted more from low dose CT screening in terms of lung-cancer specific and all cause mortality than white participants.

You can read the full editorial and study by Tanner et al here:
