National Lung Screening Trial (NLST)

NLST Study Locations

The NLST is no longer recruiting participants. The following is a list of study sites that recruited people onto the trial.

If you have participated in the NLST and have lost touch with your study researchers, please review this list to find a study location that may still be near you.

In addition to the CT scans and chest X-rays that all the centers did, some -- those that are part of a cooperative group sponsored by the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN) -- collected samples of participants' blood, urine, or sputum (phlegm) for biomarker studies.  More information on the biomarkers can be found at http://www.acrin.org/TabID/145/Default.aspx.
