The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force released draft guidelines recommending the use of low-dose CT scans to spot lung cancer in high-risk smokers and former smokers, targeting the heaviest users from ages 55 to 79. USPSTF co-vice chair and family physician Michael LeFevre, M.D., said family physicians should consider a patient's overall health when making screening decisions, but the "balance of benefit and harm is better served by focusing screening on those high-risk groups."
