   Low-dose CT for lung cancer screening offers more benefit than harm for heavy ex-smokersLow-dose CT for lung cancer screening offers more benefit than harm for heavy ex-smokers
 
For heavy (ex-)smokers, lung cancer screening using low-dose computed tomography (low-dose CT, LDCT) offers more benefit than harm: The procedure can save a number of people from dying of lung cancer; for some of them, it might also prolong overall survival.
 
 Researchers develop multi-channel recording device for lung sound analysis
 
Researchers develop multi-channel recording device for lung sound analysisA multi-channel recording device developed at TU Graz for pathological lung sounds and associated automatic lung sound analysis could support existing screening methods for early detection of, for example, Covid-19 infections. This now requires clinical data and interdisciplinary collaboration.
