From resident to reality: development of a novel trainee-driven lung cancer screening program


      • Implementation of lung cancer screening programs will challenge radiology departments across the U.S.
      • Implementation of a physician order entry system increased the number of appropriate lung cancer screening CT orders.
      • Didactic training and standardization of dictation templates improves radiologists’ reporting of lung cancer screening exams.
      • Physicians-in-training can successfully implement and manage a successful lung cancer screening program.
