This year’s Quantitative Imaging Workshop featured early detection of lung cancer, COPD and cardiovascular disease through thoracic imaging as a cornerstone of effective public health. Sessions covered pragmatic issues with thoracic screening to accelerate the implementation of lung cancer screening, evolving innovations in early detection technology, issues related to health equity and the refinement of imaging to enable the transition to population health.

Since 2004, the Quantitative Imaging Workshop focuses on 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.
Beginning in 2013, each year at the Workshop the Prevent Cancer Foundation® presents the James L. Mulshine, M.D., National Leadership Award to an individual who has had a profound impact on reducing the toll these diseases take on the health of Americans and individuals around the world.
The 2022 James L. Mulshine, M.D., National Leadership Award honored Andrea B. McKee, M.D. and the late Brady J. McKee, M.D. for their contributions to ensuring community hospitals and cancer centers provide equitable access to the highest quality screenings. Drs. Andrea and Brady McKee were instrumental in developing the LungRADS system, a quality assurance tool to standardize lung cancer screening reporting and management recommendations and facilitate outcome monitoring.
Past recipients of this award include:
