In this video, Julie A. Barta, MD, pulmonologist and assistant professor at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals, talks with Healio about a discussion on controversial new lung cancer screening guidance presented at CHEST.

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force published new lung cancer screening eligibility criteria.

Barta noted that presenters discussed “different lung cancer risk among individuals who are eligible for lung cancer screening depending on their varying risk factors, and they also focused on equity in lung cancer screening, which is a really important issue right now."
