CT Lung Cancer Screening Reduces Deaths

2021 21 Dec

Most physicians agree that discovering lung cancer early is critical to saving lives. Over 200,000 people receive lung cancer diagnoses annually and this remains a leading causes of U.S. cancer deaths. For the first time, a large retrospective population study, conducted by researchers at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, demonstrated this.  The study... Read more

Thermal ablation: safe and effective for treating early-stage lung cancer

2018 19 Sep

New Yale-led research demonstrates that thermal ablation is safe and effective in the treatment of early-stage lung cancer. Since ablation uses no radiation, thus reducing medical cost, this approach may be a viable option for patients who cannot undergo lung cancer surgery because of age or health status, according to the study published in the...

USA: Lung cancer screening low despite USPSTF recommendations

2018 22 May

New research highlights the need for more efforts to promote lung cancer screening, as only 1.9 percent of more than 7 million current and former heavy smokers were screened for lung cancer in 2016. The study is the first to examine lung cancer screening rates since the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) issued screening recommendations... Read more

Low-dose CT screening important in reducing lung cancer deaths

2018 27 Feb

About 1.6 million people die of lung cancer each year, making it the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the world. The poor outcomes of treatment in lung cancer resulting from the fact that most cases are diagnosed in the advanced stage of the disease justify the implementation of an optimal lung cancer prevention in the form of smoking cessation...

Lung cancer: differentiating metastatic from nonmetastatic lymph nodes

2017 26 Sep

New research demonstrates that dynamic first-pass contrast-enhanced (CE) perfusion area-detector CT (ADCT) is as useful as FDG PET/CT for the differentiation of metastatic from nonmetastatic lymph nodes and assessment of N stage in patients with non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). In addition, researchers found that using mathematic methods and... Read more
