Aims and objectives: Lung cancer has been the leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide among both men and women in recent years [1-3]. Smoking is the major risk factor for lung cancer, but an increase in the incidence of nonsmoking-related lung cancer in recent years [4-8]. The purpose of the present study wa[...]

Methods and materials: We retrospectively review the medical record of 1975 asymptomatic healthy subjects (40~80 year old) who voluntarily underwent low‐dose chest CT (1083 male, 892 female) from August 2013 to March 2015. Clinical information and nodule characteristics were recorded according to ACR lung-RADS classificat[...]

Results: Descriptive analysis We retrospectively review the medical record of 1975 asymptomatic healthy subjects (40~80 year old) who voluntarily underwent low‐dose chest CT (1083 male, 892 female) from August 2013 to March 2015. We identified 398 patients with family history of lung cancer while the other[...]

Conclusion: In this retrospective analysis applying propensity score matching in order to minimize confounding effects and selection bias to estimate the true causal effect, we demonstrated three major findings. The first one is that to utilize the propensity score matching to adjust for selection bias could ad[...]
