Predictors of Imaging Surveillance for Surgically Treated Early-Stage Lung Cancer
This study explored recent patterns of surveillance imaging 4-8 mos after surgical treatment of early stage lung cancer using the SEER database. Initial imaging consisted of CXR (60%), CT (25%) and PET (3%). 13% of patients received no imaging. NCCN guidelines adherence for receipt of CT was 47%, but increased from 28% to 60% over the period of study. Adherence was reduced in pts with stage I disease and those who had surgery as a single treatment modality.
