Costs of lung cancer screening were determined for individuals with a 2% or greater risk of lung cancer over 3 years for 2059 subjects participating in the Pan-Canadian Early Detection of Lung Cancer Study.  During the first 18 mos of screening the per-person cost was $453.  Surgical therapy cost $33,344 over 2 years compared to costs of treating advanced stage cancers of $47,792.
