This past month a landmark decision was made by the Centers for Medicare services to approve lung cancer screening. Up to this point lung cancer has a largely been a deadly disease with poor survival. The 5 year mortality has not significantly changed since the 1970’s despite significant advancement in medical technology and treatment.
In 2002 the National Cancer Institute (NCI) sponsored a large multicenter trial to examine the possible benefit of utilizing low-dose CT screening in patients who had a strong history of smoking. The National Lung Cancer Screening Trial was concluded in 2010 and published in 2011; the results were astounding showing a 20% decrease in mortality in patients who were screened with low dose CT compared to chest x-ray.
Following this publication the national comprehensive cancer network issued recommendations for screening. Since then Atlantic County has remained at the forefront of lung cancer detection. Atlantic Medical Imaging began screening patient's in November 2011, providing a free service for the some 250,000 residents of Atlantic County and the surrounding communities. The success of this program has resulted in the detection earlier stage cancers, with much better survival.
This past year the US Preventative task force endorsed lung cancer screening in patients 55 years of age with at least 30 pack years history of smoking. As of February 5th of 2015 CMS and all private insurance carriers have begun covering these patients for yearly low dose CT screenings. This has been described as a “game changer” in the fight against lung cancer, which claims almost 160,000 lives a year. Accounting for more deaths than breast, colon, prostate and pancreatic cancers combined.
AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center provides the first and only local option for patients to receive treatment from an established multidisciplinary team consisting of experienced thoracic surgeons, pulmonologists, oncologists, radiation oncologists and radiologists. AtlantiCare Imaging Services and AMI will provide this screening for the “at risk population” with the hope to change the mortality of this once deadly disease.
