Noninvasive Imaging Detects Genetic Mutations In Lung Cancer

2014 05 Jul

A recent study has found that patients with lung cancer could benefit from a high-tech, noninvasive imaging analysis called quantitative computed tomography based texture analysis (QTA). The new method was shown to be a safe alternative to surgical biopsy, which can be dangerous for lung cancer patients. QTA has the ability to non-invasively detect... Read more
