Title
Comparison of radiologist recommended follow-up with procedures received by study participants following screening with LDCT
Summary
Following lung screening, participants received recommendation from a study radiologist for the appropriate follow-up. The goal of this study is to evaluate the agreement between the follow-up test recommended by the NLST radiologist and what was actually received by participants in the LDCT arm.
Aims

1: To assess if the first procedure a study participant receives after screening with LDCT matches what was recommended by the radiologist.
2: To assess if study participants ever receive the diagnostic follow-up recommended by the radiologist after screening with LDCT.
