This article has been corrected: In the Introduction section, the second sentence of the second paragraph was worded incorrectly. The proper sentence is as follows:

A significant reduction in lung cancer mortality was reported among the subjects enrolled in the LDCT arm of the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) when compared to the chest X-ray arm, along with a false discovery rate of 96.4% and an overdiagnosis global rate of 18.5%, reaching 78.9% for indolent cancers in the LDCT arm.
