What a year it has been. Most recently we finally were able to learn that the "definitive Study" on early detection of lung cancer has published the results of this landmark trial. Early detection of lung cancer saves lives and Spiral CT screening was found to be more effective than Xrays in detecting early stage lung cancer; the question becomes what will now been done with this information.
Additionally, this year has proven to be filled with advances in treating lung cancer; personalized medicine - the individualization of treatment is becoming the norm. Genetic testing of tumors is becoming increasingly more important in determining treament.
The above just a few of the strides that have been made. Our fervent hope is that the pace is accelerated in the year ahead
