Abstract

A sputum cytologic screening project aiming at early diagnosis and study of the pathogenesis of bronchogenic carcinoma has been going on at Sabbatsberg Hospital, Stockholm, since 1964. In 1974 the project was reorganized to study a target population of male cigarette smokers without known lung disease at high cancer risk from outpatient clinics and various companies and organizations [1].
