Latest Lung cancer staging Stories
A new study has found that endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is associated with improved outcomes in patients with localized pancreatic cancer, possibly due to the detection of earlier cancers and improved stage-appropriate management, including more selective performance of curative intent surgery.
WASHINGTON, June 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The pilot program for Lung Cancer Alliance's (LCA) website for patient donated scans is helping open the door to a potentially new method for evaluating lung cancer risk in smokers as well as non-smokers. In a paper published in the July issue of Academic Radiology, researchers showed that a high resolution CT scan to check for calcification in the lungs coupled with a pulmonary function test to measure lung capacity could be used to numerically...
Research published in the June edition of the Journal of Thoracic Oncology sought to investigate the time trends of surgical outcomes of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) between 1979 and 2008.
WASHINGTON, June 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA), the only national non-profit dedicated to providing support and advocacy for those living with or at risk for lung cancer, announced today the launching of the first open access website for CT scans and clinical data donated by patients, called Give a Scan, that will increase and accelerate research for lung cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment and drug development.
National comparisons of lung cancer survival in England, Norway and Sweden 2001-2004; differences occur early in follow up.
Office-based, surgeon-performed, ultrasound-guided, fine needle aspiration (FNA) of head and neck lesions yields a statistically significant higher diagnostic rate compared to the standard palpation technique.
Metastases that were 2 millimeters or less in diameter ("micrometastases") in axillary lymph nodes detected on examination of a single section of the lymph nodes were associated with poorer disease-free and overall survival in breast cancer patients.
Photoacoustics technology could make some lab processes more efficient, says MU researcher.
