Coming next month in JACS and online now: Lung surveillance strategy for high-grade soft tissue sarcomas: Chest X-ray or CT scan?

Adriana C. Gamboa, MD; Cecilia G. Ethun, MD; Jeffrey M. Switchenko, PhD; and colleagues report in the November issue of the Journal of the American College of Surgeons (JACS) that lung surveillance with chest X-ray (CXR) did not result in worse overall survival when compared with computer tomography (CT). With considerable savings, a CXR-based protocol may optimize resource use for lung surveillance in high-grade soft tissue sarcoma; prospective trials are needed.
