The low dose computed tomography (LDCT) scan is the integral part of the lung cancer screening pathway. Cancer Care Ontario has crated a rigorous radiology quality assurance program within its High Risk Lung Cancer Screening Pilot (HRLCSP). The QA manual outlines standards regarding the facility and equipment, radiologist and other personnel training, template reporting and standardized follow up of lung nodules. The different modules of the QA program will be described in the webinar.

After viewing this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • appreciate the necessity for rigorous radiology quality assurance (QA) in the context of lung cancer screening; 
  • know about the different components of radiology QA - facility, equipment, personnel, reporting; and
  • know about standardized follow up of lung nodules.
