The institute for DiagNostic Accuracy (iDNA) is a Contract Research Organization specialized in early stage lung cancer, and researching new technologies for the early detection and treatments of lung cancer, with comorbidities in cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)/emphysema. Key to the early detection of lung cancer are high quality lung cancer screening programs and therefore iDNA wants to set the ‘’golden standard’’ for worldwide lung cancer screening. Not only do they offer A to Z guidance for the lung cancer screening implementation process itself, they are also on the research frontline in this area of expertise and offer educational solutions for nodule management as well. Partners are provided with newly developed software solutions, such as data tracking systems and e-Learning tools for radiologists.

iDNA has a Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR) division specialising in the field of lung cancer screening,  They can provide support for any lung cancer screening related HEOR questions which is strengthened by the collaborations with their academic partners.

Erasmus MC (main applicant) and iDNA (NL) are part of a consortium executing the European lung cancer screening trial: 4-IN-THE-LUNG-RUN (4-ITLR). The goal of the study is to evaluate personalised strategies in recruitment, screening intervals, smoking cessation and other co-morbidity (coronary heart disease and COPD) prevention strategies.
