Abstract

The most significant factor which determines the survival of a patient newly-diagnosed with lung cancer is the stage at which the disease has been diagnosed. Late diagnosis is common. This review focuses upon the possibility of earlier diagnosis using various cytological and radiological imaging techniques such as sputum cytology or cytometry, CT scanning, and fluorescence bronchoscopy.
