Up to 40 percent of thoracotomies ( surgical incision of the chest wall often involving surgery of the lung ) performed for non–small cell lung cancer ( NSCLC ) are reported to be unnecessary, predomi ...


In a study, published in the journal Cancer Research, the researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, used single nucleotide polymorphism ( SNP ) array technology, which focuses on the building block ...


A study, published in the journal Gastroenterology, showed that the risk of developing cancer as a result of being exposed to X-rays during computed tomography colonography ( also known as "virtual co ...


The use of positron emission tomography ( PET ) with the radiotracer fluorodeoxyglucose ( FDG ) is “underutilized” in diagnosing and treating cancer of the reproductive organs — the cervix, uterus, ov ...


In a study, researchers presented astonishing new evidence that the dog may have the capacity to contribute to the process of early cancer detection. Other scientific studies have documented the a ...


Expanding the use of positron emission tomography ( PET ) technology can provide early and accurate assessment of a tumor's response to a particular therapy allowing physicians to better tailor a pati ...


Screening current or former smokers with the imaging technique of computed tomography ( CT ) may increase the rate of diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer, but may not necessarily reduce the risk of ...


Screening current or former smokers with the imaging technique of computed tomography may increase the rate of diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer, but may not necessarily reduce the risk of advanc ...


There is no difference between proton radiotherapy ( PRT ) and intensity-modulated radiotherapy ( IMRT ) when comparing the toxicity among Medicare beneficiary patients with prostate cancer at 12 mont ...


Researchers have developed a novel technique for detecting ALK rearrangements in non-small cell lung cancers ( NSCLCs ) that is more sensitive and easier to perform than currently available techniques ...


Researchers at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute ( Orlando, Florida; United States ) have identified a set of RNA molecules that are detectable in tissue samples and urine of prostate cancer ...


Liquid biopsies can detect biomarkers carrying information on the development and progression of cancer. Researchers demonstrated that a 24 plasma-based microRNA signature classifier ( MSC ) was capab ...
