Lung Cancer Screening Registry

The ACR Lung Cancer Screening Registry (LCSR) helps clinicians monitor and demonstrate the quality of CT lung cancer screenings in their practice through periodic feedback reports that include peer and registry benchmarks. Because screening is performed on an asymptomatic population, there is an added responsibility for the medical community to ensure that risks and benefits are adequately measured and monitored. Contributing data to the LCSR not only helps clinicians improve their own quality of care, but also helps improve and refine lung cancer screening care for everyone at the national level.

LCSR participation is certified as a Practice Quality Improvement (PQI) projects toward American Board of Radiology Part IV Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credit.

Announcement: Use your LCSR data to carry performance improvement projects related to improving adherence to annual screening, ensuring appropriate radiation dose, and increasing smoking cessation rates. Learn more »
