Quantitative Imaging Workshop XVIII: Optimizing Thoracic Imaging to Detect and Manage Early Lung Cancer/COPD

The Prevent Cancer Foundation’s 18th annual Quantitative Imaging Workshop will take place November 4-5, 2021, as a virtual event. This year’s topic is Optimizing Thoracic Imaging to Detect and Manage Early Lung Cancer/COPD.

The Workshop  is a high-impact multi-disciplinary forum for the advancement of quantitative low-dose computerized tomography (LDCT) imaging biomarkers for detection and management of early thoracic disease—lung cancer, COPD and cardiovascular disease—three of the top four leading causes of death in the U.S.

The Foundation aims to convene stakeholders and achieve the following:

  • Explore approaches to more precisely characterize signatures in early lung cancers using imaging tools in routine clinical settings.
  • Extract maximally useful clinical information to optimize the benefits/harms ratio for individuals undergoing thoracic evaluation in annual LDCT screening, especially related to lung cancer, COPD and cardiovascular disease.
  • Ensure economical access to screening for all individuals at risk for lung cancer and COPD, while overcoming disparities that have been previously reported in mortality from diseases detected by LDCT.

Since 2004, the Foundation has convened a series of annual workshops to exchange ideas on exciting new biomedical opportunities that the transformational LDCT technology enables, as well as information on the quality and consistency of policy and advocacy for responsible lung cancer, COPD and cardiovascular screening.

The 2021 workshop is put on in partnership with the American Lung Association.

Register for this year’s Quantitative Imaging Workshop and help move the world toward increased early detection and a healthier future.
