The purpose of this study is to determine how many people from a lung cancer screening program will take part in a study to support magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and blood-based biomarker research for lung cancer screening. The study aims to support future research that seeks to identify more accurate imaging and blood tests to detect lung cancer at an early stage in people who are at high risk for lung cancer. In this study, researchers will compare MRI characterization of potentially cancerous nodules to low-dose computed tomography (CT) characterization of the same nodules. The study will also utilize a biomarker test to look for genetic material in the blood that can be used to identify early lung cancer. A biomarker is a biological molecule found in blood, other body fluids or tissues that may be a sign of a condition or disease and can be used to predict someone’s response to a specific treatment. Participants will be asked to undergo MRI imaging and provide an optional blood sample, in addition to completing a questionnaire about their MRI experience.
