Oct 2020

Document Status: Current

Guideline Objective

The Recommendations for the Management of Actionable Incidental Findings in the Lung Cancer Screening Pilot for People at High Risk provides additional support in determining ‘actionability’ of certain incidental findings. Prior to the Lung Cancer Screening Pilot for People at High Risk launch, reading radiologists were trained in the use of the reporting template scoring of nodules and follow-up recommendations. Incidental findings that require further action were reported and tracked. Definitions of “actionability” with respect to incidental findings were left to clinical discretion of the radiologist. The recommendations were created in response to several radiologists who requested additional support with respect to incidental findings.
