The first part of this thesis (Chapters 1-3) investigates which treatments lung cancer patients in the United States received before the implementation of lung cancer screening, and how these treatment patterns change as a result of the implementation of lung cancer screening. In the second part of this thesis (Chapters 4-6), the benefits and harms of population-based lung cancer screening in the United States are investigated from different perspectives.
