There were 64 observed lung cancer deaths in the computed tomography (CT) screening cohort (n = 7995) over the 10 years of follow-up, whereas the validated model predicted 117.7 deaths (95% confidence interval, 98 deaths-139 deaths) in the absence of screening, indicating a mortality reduction of 45.6% (P < .001). These results indicate that CT screening along with early stage treatment can reduce lung cancer-specific mortality.
