Correlate Longitudinal Changes in Spirometry with Longitudinal Changes in the CT Scan and CXR in the Diagnosis of Lung Cancer
1. To correlate the LAA% and WA% as determined by CT of patients enrolled in the NLST with their pulmonary function as measured by spirometry. 2. To explore the relationship between a combined index of chest radiograph abnormalities and pulmonary function.
