The 2016 SCCT/STR guideline for coronary artery calcification (CAC) scoring on non-cardiac chest CT (NCCT) scans explicitly calls for the reporting of CAC. Whether the publication of the 2016 SCCT/STR guideline has had any impact on CAC reporting in lung cancer screening (LCS) scans has not been investigated. Consecutive patients with a LCS scan were identified from the University of Minnesota LCS registry and evaluated for CAC reporting in 3 separate cohorts: 6 months before, 6 months after, an...

Increasing American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) representation in genetic research is critical to ensuring that personalized medicine discoveries do not widen AI/AN health disparities by only benefiting well-represented populations. One reason for the under-representation of AIs/ANs in research is warranted research distrust due to abuse of some AI/AN communities in research. An approach to easing the tension between protecting AI/AN communities and increasing the representation of AI/AN person...

ONE CONCERN: as lung cancer screening (LCS) is implemented is that patients will be screened who are too ill to benefit. Poor exercise capacity (EC) predicts adverse outcomes following lung resection. OBJECTIVE Describe the distribution of EC among smokers eligible for LCS and examine associations with comorbidities. METHODS Cross-sectional analysis of baseline data from a randomized controlled trial of tobacco treatment in the context of LCS. Participants responded regarding limitations in mode...

Abstract: American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) continue to experience extreme lung cancer health disparities. The state of Minnesota is home to over 70,000 AI/AN, and they have a three-fold increase in lung cancer mortality compared with other races within Minnesota. Genetic mutation testing in lung cancer is now a standard of highquality lung cancer care and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation testing has been recommended for all adenocarcinoma lung cases, regardless of smok...

Background Chronic bronchitis (CB) increases risk of COPD exacerbations. We have shown that the St. George’s Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) CB definition identifies patients with a similar clinical phenotype as classically defined CB. Whether the SGRQ CB definition is a predictor of future COPD exacerbations is unknown. Methods We analyzed 7,557 smokers with normal spirometry and Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease stage 1-4 COPD in the Genetic Epidemiology of COPD study wit...
