JudyB Posted April 1, 2003 Share Posted April 1, 2003 New Lung Cancer Risk Assessment Formula (March 19, 2003) A new lung cancer detection formula is available for those people 50 years and older, who have smoked at least half a pack a day for at least 25 years. The formula, created by researchers from New York's Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, is available on www.mskcc.org and will help doctors identify high risk patients. The data can also be used to make necessary health care decisions, such as whether a patient should seek the controversial spiral CT scan.
