Simplified PLCOm2012: Selection criteria for lung cancer screening
In the United States the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) used risk factors for lung cancer (e.g., ≥30 pack-years of smoking and <15 years since quitting) as selection criteria for lung-cancer screening. Use of an accurate model that incorporates additional risk factors to select persons for screening may identify more persons who have lung cancer or in whom lung cancer will develop.

Current model assumes only information is known regarding age and smoking history. Using the full PLCOm2012 model may provide more accurate predictions.

Conditional information

The use of the PLCOM2012 model was shown to be more sensitive than the NLST criteria for lung-cancer detection.

Since this model is simplified, the model assumes that the participant was white, had a BMI of 27 with some college education, no COPD, no personal history of cancer, and no family history of lung cancer. If these assumptions do not match the participant, please use the full PLCOm2012 model.

Outcomes of the model can be used for the selection of individuals for lung cancer screening.
