Clin. Chest Med.. 2002 Mar 23 (1).

The specialty has the knowledge and technology to change the outcome of lung cancer. Lung cancer, diagnosed in early stages, is as curable as all other cancers.

Sputum cytology identifies small central lesions, and CT scanning discovers peripheral tiny adenocarcinomas.
