Presents chapters written by leading clinical researchers in the field of lung
cancer, where high resolution 3-D imaging technology appears to hold the greatest
near-term promise, as well as contributions from recognized experts in CAD,
medical information technology systems, regulatory procedure, x-ray standards
development, and clinical trial design. These expert contributors discuss the
current state of the art and provide a road map for directing further research
in lung cancer as well as other organ systems.
