Richard Fagerstrom, Ph.D., an NCI mathematical statistician from the Division of Cancer Prevention, was the co-chief statistician for the National Lung Screening Trial, a nearly decade-long study that showed a 20 percent reduction in lung mortality among heavy smokers screening with low-dose CT, compared to those screened with X-ray.
