More Frequent Surveillance Following Lung Cancer Resection Is Not Associated With Improved Survival: A Nationally Representative Cohort Study
Using the National Cancer Database, the effect of the timing of computed tomography (CT) surveillance after resection of non-small cell lung cancer on survival was investigated. Survival was similar for patients undergoing CTs every three months or every six months compared to those undergoing annual surveillance CTs. More frequent imaging also had no impact on survival after recurrence.
