October 18, 2022 — The RSNA is promoting National Lung Cancer Screening Dayby urging centers to open on Saturday, November 12, to boost screening access.

The society is collaborating with the Radiology Health Equity Coalition and the National Lung Cancer Roundtable to promote the initiative, which has been prompted in part by President Biden’s Cancer Panel, it said. Lung cancer screening is performed using low-dose CT.

“Together we are asking screening centers nationwide to open their doors that day and allow individuals to access screening — an action that could save lives and increase awareness of screening within communities,” the RSNA said in an October 17 statement.
