Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Accurate and timely diagnosis is critical for the effective management of lung cancer, the leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. This Special Issue of the Journal of Clinical Medicine will provide an overview of the latest developments in the clinical diagnosis of lung cancer. We welcome original research and comprehensive reviews that showcase recent advances across the continuum of lung cancer diagnosis—from screening and early detection to molecular testing and biomarker discovery. Key topics to be covered include the implementation of lung cancer screening programs, the comparative effectiveness of different imaging modalities, innovations in endoscopic techniques and minimally invasive staging, the role of liquid biopsies, and the validation of emerging molecular biomarkers.

By highlighting cutting-edge findings across diverse disciplines, this issue aims to promote multidisciplinary collaboration and the adoption of best practices. The goal is to achieve earlier diagnosis, more accurate subtyping, and improved staging. The insights presented may guide clinicians in maximizing diagnostic precision, aiding them in selecting optimal treatment approaches and personalized monitoring strategies. Overall, by facilitating state-of-the-art lung cancer diagnosis, this collection of articles can ultimately help to improve patient outcomes for this deadly disease.
