CT Scan Arm
Device: CT Scan with Spirometry
During the screening and later during the five annual study visits the patients will be scheduled to undergo total of five CT scans. The first CT scan will take place at the beginning of the study and then each year for a period of five years.
- Stage distribution of HIV-seropositive patients [ Time Frame: Day 1 ]To determine differences in stage distribution of HIV-seropositive patients at lung cancer diagnosis between those who are screened by spiral CT and historic controls.
- To create a specimen bank of serum, sputum, and tissue [ Time Frame: 5 years ]To create a specimen bank of serum, sputum, and tissue from the cohort of heavy smokers with HIV at high risk for lung cancer identified in Specific Aim 1.
- Epigenetic analysis of sera and sputa [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]To use epigenetic analysis of sera and sputa collected in Specific Aim 2 from patients screened in Specific Aim 1 as a complementary approach to low dose helical CT in order to discriminate radiologically indeterminate nodules as either molecularly positive or negative.
