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.
