22). Again, screening lung cancer with chest radiograph failed to reduce mortality from lung cancer. On the other hand, in Japan, screening of lung cancer that is conjunct with screening of pulmonary tuberculosis, mainly with a 10 × 10 cm miniature chest radiograph, has been carried out for decades as a government public health administrative policy. Although many retrospective and prospective cohort studies had suggested a reduction of deaths from lung cancer [7, 8], the degree of the effectiveness was judged small by a reconnaissance report by a government-funded evaluation team.

Surgical resection with or without adjuvant chemotherapy at an early stage solely provides an opportunity to Y.

Takiguchi cure the disease, except for a smaller chance of cure at a locally advanced stage when it was treated with a definitive chemoradiotherapy. Early detection and surgical resection of lung cancer, therefore, is the bottom line to reduce deaths from lung cancer. The first randomized study for evaluating effectiveness of early detection of lung cancer, the Mayo Lung Project (MLP), compared a screening with chest radiography in every 4 months (the intervention group) with a screening with chest radiograph in every year (the control group) in high-risk group for the development of lung cancer, that is, in male heavy smokers [3, 4].
