ACR Lung Cancer Screening Podcast

Pleural Space Lung Cancer Screening PodcastThe ACR Lung Cancer Screening Steering Committee has partnered with the National Lung Cancer Roundtable to create a new podcast titled Pleural Space | Conversations in Lung Cancer, featuring candid and casual conversations about the work being done in lung cancer and health equity with the people doing that work.

The new season, “The Power of Partnerships,” is listed below and highlights collaborations between patients, primary care, pulmonology, radiology, and health equity experts sharing new data and existing programs aimed at increasing lung cancer screening rates in the underserved population.

The first season, “Mythbusting Lung Cancer Screening,” launched in 2020 and focused on combatting common myths found in treatment and discussion of lung cancer.
