Title
Estimation of Overdiagnosis Bias in the NLST
Summary
This study will determined the magnitude of overdiagnosis with CT screening using data from the NLST, and then applied a convolution model to estimate the impact on a broader mass screening program. These data will be useful in helping to understanding the risks and limitations of CT, but may be useful in understanding the natural history of this disease.
