Lung Cancer Screening and SPN in the Patient with COPD

Patients with advanced Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are at increased risk of lung cancer, and should be screened with low-dose CT. The diagnosis of COPD also influences the diagnostic approach and treatment options if solitary pulmonary nodules (SPN) are identified during screening. This webinar discusses the link between COPD and lung cancer, and how early diagnosis can improve survival. Case studies will be presented.
