Exploring the effects of low-dose radiation
Radioactivity existed since the beginning of the universe. But while the effects of high-dose radiation are widely explored, the impact of human exposure to low-dose radiation is not fully understood. An important landmark in the research field of low-dose radiation is the EU-funded research project GENRISK-T. Cancer scientists and radiation biologists at six European laboratories collaborated to study the risk of thyroid cancer after exposure to ionizing radiation.

Non-ionizing radiation includes the spectrum of ultraviolet (UV), visible light, infrared (IR), microwave (MW), radio frequency (RF), and extremely low frequency (ELF). Lasers commonly operate in the UV, visible, and IR frequencies." Radiation Therapy- National Cancer Institute http://www.cancer.gov/publications/patient-education/radiationttherapy.pdf "Radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy) is a cancer treatment that uses high doses of radiation to kill cancer cells and stop them from spreading. At low doses, radiation is used as an x-ray to see inside your body and take pictures, such as x-rays of your teeth or broken bones. Radiation used in cancer treatment works in much the same way, except that it is given at higher doses." How Does Nuclear Radiation Harm the Body? http://www.livescience.com/13250-radiation-health-effects-japan-nuclear-reactor-cancer.html "There's been some reported evidence that radioactive iodine and cesium are being released into the environment from the malfunctioning nuclear reactors in Japan, said Kathryn Higley, director of the Oregon State University department of nuclear engineering and radiation health physics." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

CT radiation and cancer risk
It has been known for decades that radiation exposure increases cancer risk. Most of the evidence comes from analysis of atomic bomb survivors. Almost all data I can find is based on the same data. Basically, 20% of Americans will doe of cancer in general (400 in 2000). Being exposed to 10 milli-Sievert (mSv) of radiation increases risk by 0.05%, or 1 additional cancer in 2000. A CT scan is between 2-10 mSv of radiation. Natural occurring radiation from space and ground based radiation like Radon, is 2 mSV of radiation per year. The link between CT radiation and cancer has been known for some time, and modern machines and techniques are able to reduce the amount of radiation per scan, as compared to the amount when the literature was written. Cancer risk does still exist, and you should have a conversation with your doctor about the possible risks AND benefits of doing CT. As well as if another type of test like ultrasound or MRI would be an appropriate alternative.

Molly Cheshire Interviews Scientist on Radon and LOW Cancer rates! Prof. Bernie Cohen pt 1
Learn from a scientist who did the worlds largest study on radon...Bernard Leonard Cohen (June 14, 1924 – March 17, 2012) was born in Pittsburgh,and was Professor Emeritus of Physics at the University of Pittsburgh. Professor Cohen was a staunch opponent to the so-called Linear no-threshold model (LNT) which postulates there exists no safe threshold for radiation exposure. His views, what was in the 1980s and 1990s considered a self-marginalizing posture had gained within 20 years support from a strong minority.He died in March 2012. No-threshold and plutonium toxicity debates He claimed: "All estimates of the cancer risk from low level radiation are based on the linear-no threshold theory (LNT) which is based solely on largely discredited concepts of radiation carcinogenesis, with no experimental verification in the low dose region of the most important applications. These risk estimates are now leading to the expenditure of tens of billions of dollars to protect against dangers whose existence is highly questionable. It is therefore of utmost importance to test the validity of this theory."[5] A conclusion with an update to the landmark study published 1995, continues: "Since no other plausible explanation has been found after years of effort by myself and others, I conclude that the most plausible explanation for our discrepancy is that the linear-no threshold theory fails, grossly over-estimating the cancer risk in the low dose, low dose rate region. There are no other data capable of testing the theory in that region. "An easy answer to the credibility of this conclusion would be for someone to suggest a potential not implausible explanation based on some selected variables. I (or he) will then calculate what values of those variables are required to explain our discrepancy. We can then make a judgement on the plausibility of that explanation. To show that this procedure is not unreasonable, I offer to provide a not-implausible explanation for any finding of any other published ecological study. This alone demonstrates that our work is very different from any other ecological study, and therefore deserves separate consideration."[6] His debates in academic periodicals and published correspondence with R. William Field, Brian J. Smith (assistant professor of biostatistics, University of Iowa), Jerry Puskin (from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency), Sarah Darby, and Sir Richard Doll and others regarding his radon-related ecologic studies are well known.[7][8][9] Among other expert panels, the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer discussed at length Cohen's results then concluded:"The weight of evidence is that the ecological analyses of Cohen can be rejected."[10] In March, 2011, Professor Cohen stated, reflecting on his study and its controversial results that low levels of radiation can have beneficial health effects and reduce the risks of cancer, "There is evidence on both sides. Whether low-level radiation is protective against cancer, a theory called radiation hormesis, is debated in the scientific community. Furthermore, "...[on his viewpoint, and its support found in his exhaustive studies] it could go further and say that no confounding factors (like socio-economic, geography, ethnicity, medical care access, and beyond 500 explored in the analysis) can explain the results. However, my study was designed to test the assumption that the danger of radiation is simply proportional to the radiation dose, which is the only evidence that low-level radiation may be harmful. My conclusion was that that assumption is false.".[1][6][11] Reputable scientists disagree about that;[12][13] the debate is far from over. Given the uncertain effects of low-level radiation, there is a pressing need for good quality research in this area.[14] Subsequent research would join a profound array of positions including a 1982 United Nations' work-group study -UNSCEAR- concluding: "There appear to be no nonspecific effects from low doses of radiation that result in a shortening of the life span."[

Radiation Exposure ,Radiation safety- Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video demonstrates how radiation affects the body, the different types of radiology procedures, and safety recommendations. X-rays ionize human tissue and deposit energy that can cause harmful changes within the body (break the DNA chain). There is a cancer risk from X-rays. The dose of radiation is cumulative. X-rays are considered for carcinogen list. The government is attempting to avoid the use of unnecessary CT scans and x-rays to avoid unnecessary exposure to radiation. This highlights the cancer risk. Doctors need to pay close attention to the risks involved with the use of x-rays. The cancer risk associated with radiation exposure is documented in cases of atomic bomb survivors. The risk for medical uses is controversial and usually played down by physicians. Radiation at a high level is carcinogenic. The level of radiation from x-ray exposure is low. The effects of low-level radiation is not known. What is the safe radiation level? The safe level is not known. It is known that CT scans, fluoroscopy, mammography and x-rays expose the public to high levels of radiation especially in young females. The risk of exposure should balance the medical benefit. Optimize radiation doses by exposing the patient only to enough radiation to get a clear image. There is a growing concern about the risk associated with giving patient large doses of radiation. The use of CT scans has increased recently in adults and children possibly exposing the patient to an unnecessarily high dose of radiation. CT scan is the method often used to diagnose cancer, diseases fractures and it exposes the patient to a much larger does of radiation than x-rays. Radiation from CT scan of the pelvis equals the same amount as 100 chest x-rays. Children are ten times more sensitive to radiation than adults. 3-4 million children receive CT scans and about 1,500 of them will develop cancer two decades later. Children should not be given an adult dose of radiation. Radiation dose limits: CT scan of the pelvis has the highest level of exposure to the skin, marrow and gonads. Use mini fluoroscopy C-arm whenever possible. Fluoroscopy emits a lot of radiation. The closer the extremity is to the radiation source, the higher the dose of radiation the patient receives. When the distance from the beam increases, the dose of radiation is less. Attempt to decrease exposure time. Radiation intensity follows the inverse square law. It is all about distance. If the intensity of radiation at 1 meter from the source is 100 mR/hr then the intensity of radiation at 2 meters from the source is ¼ or 25 mR/hr in same unit area. At 3 meters from the source, the intensity of radiation is 1/9 the original or 11.1 mR/hr. Units of radiation (radiation nomenclature) •Roentgen: unit of radiation exposure in air. •Rad: energy absorbed per gram of tissue. •Rem: biological effect of a rad. There is less exposure to the physician when imaging a smaller body part. Larger body parts create an increased exposure to the physician when imaging a patient with C-arm. Do not be in the direct path of the radiation beam. Protection: •Monitoring: a dosimeter badge only records how much radiation you have received. It does not protect you from exposure to radiation. •Shielding: lead gowns and aprons work to stop exposure to fluoroscopy radiation. Lead aprons attenuate scattered radiation by about 95%. •Position Rapidly dividing cells are most sensitive to radiation exposure: sperms, lymphocytes, small intestine, and stomach. Radiation damage seldom appears at the time of radiation. The first effects of radiation damage is usually seen as a drop in the white blood cell count. The first external sign of damage is seen as a skin burn. Studies suggest that people who use fluoroscopy extensively have a higher rate of cataracts. Early effects or radiation exposure: •Death •Hematological depression •Chromosome aberration •Skin erythema •Epilation. Team exposure to radiation •Direct beam 4,000 mrem/min •Surgeon (1 ft.): 20 mrem/min whole body •First assist (2 ft.): 6 mrem/min whole body •No exposure (5 ft.) at scrub or anesthesiologist. •6 feet is safe.

Breaking News  - Lower radiotherapy dose is good as targeted breast cancer treatment
Thousands of women who have radiotherapy for breast cancer could be spared severe side-effects after scientists found that targeted treatments or lower doses were just as effective.The study, led by Cambridge University and the Institute of Cancer Research in London, showed that irradiating the tumour – rather than the whole breast – was just as good and came with fewer side-effects.A second approach – bathing the whole breast with radiation but using a lower dose – was also equally effective and also reduced adverse effects.The less aggressive technique was shown to reduce permanent disfigurement of the breasts. The main side-effect of radiotherapy is an overall change in breast appearance; women also report pain, hardening of tissue, sensitivity and a build-up of fluid.The scientists told the European Breast Cancer Conference in Barcelona that each of these side-effects were reduced with the targeted or low-dose approach.More than 38,000 women have radiotherapy for breast cancer in England each year. The procedure is given after having a tumour surgically removed and is designed to eradicate all remaining cancer cells.The trial involved testing the lower dose and more targeted dose among 1,200 women at 41 British hospitals, and then monitoring them for five years after treatment.The researchers found no difference in rates of cancer recurrence with the less aggressive approaches, and the patients reported significantly lower side-effects.Dr Indrani Bhattacharya, a clinical research fellow at the Institute of Cancer Research, said: ‘The findings from this study are reassuring for women who are offered either whole breast or partial breast radiotherapy using this technique of radiotherapy, which is simple to deliver and already available in centres worldwide.’Grete Brauten-Smith, of the Breast Cancer Care charity, said: ‘While radiotherapy is never a walk in the park, it will be wonderful if fewer people experience traumatic side-effects, such as severe pain, as a result.’ AutoNews- Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-5534539/Lower-radiotherapy-dose-good-targeted-breast-cancer-treatment.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

Why cancer may require a higher radiation dose in diagnostic imaging
If you have concerns about the safety of various diagnostic scans, especially those that expose you to ionizing radiation on a regular basis, watch MD Anderson experts explain some myths about diagnostic imaging and why certain levels of radiation are required. Not all diagnostic imaging involves ionizing radiation. (Ultrasound and MRI are two exceptions.) But for those that do, MD Anderson doctors use the lowest doses possible to get the answers they need. The risks of radiation exposure through medical testing are actually very small — and still theoretical. But MD Anderson minimizes even those risks by tailoring the amount of radiation to the size of each patient, as well as to the purpose of each scan. Learn more about [insert cancerwise link]

For more info: https://draxe.com/electromagnetic-radiation/?utm_campaign=Youtube-Jan-2012&utm_medium=social&utm_source=youtube&utm_term=radiation If you use a microwave to heat your food, this video is a must-see! -Microwaves give off radiation. -Low dose radiation exposure over time has damaging effects. -Multiple studies have been performed on the effects of radiation from cell phones and microwaves. Effects of Radiation: 1. Increased, spontaneous abortion 2. Shifts in red and white blood cell counts 3. Increased somatic mutation in lymphocytes 4. Increased childhood cancers Alternatives to Microwaves: Rather than using a microwave, use: 1. Stove 2. Convection oven These methods take a bit more time, but it is well worth it! Action Steps: 1. Replace your microwave with the stove or a convection oven. 2. Use headphones to talk on cell phones. 3. Try to avoid airport scanners by opting for a pat-down. 4. Try to reduce overall radiation exposure over time.

Low dose radiation can heal you and save the honey bees - Radiation Hormesis- Jay Gutierrez
Thank you for sharing!!! Jay Gutierrez is considered an expert in the field of "Natural Radiation Hormesis", having traveled several times around the country and working with scientists, doctors, healers, and clients. They have been successfully fighting and healing serious degenerative and life threatening diseases such as cancer and many, many others. And it is saving the honey bees. Night Hawk Minerals, their company, is the only major U.S. company they are aware of that actively promotes the use of natural radiation hormesis. http://www.nighthawkminerals.com Jay works with his colleague Dr. Raphael d'Angelo, who is his Medical Director and Parasitologist for their clients. Jay and Dr. d'Angelo have toured many parts of the U.S. speaking about the phenomenal healing aspects of "Radiation Hormesis". ****************** The late Galen Winsor, a nuclear physicist of renown who worked at, and helped design, nuclear power plants in Hanford, WA; Oak Ridge, TN; Morris, IL, San Jose, CA; Wilmington, NJ. Among his positions of expertise he was in charge of measuring and controlling the nuclear fuel inventory and storage. Galen Winsor traveled and lectured all over America, spoke on national talk radio, and made several videos exposing the misunderstood issues of nuclear radiation. He shows that fear of radiation has been exaggerated to scare people ... so a few powerful people can maintain total control of the world's most valuable power resource.

What is a low-dose CT scan?
Dr Jeffrey Goree explains what a low-dose computerized tomography (LDCT) scan is. The Waddell Lung Initiative is funded by a grant from the Genesis Philanthropy and JoAnn Waddell Regional Fund for Hospice and Cancer Care Lung cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer. Early screenings usually are not covered by Medicare or insurance and by the time the cancer is detected, it is often too far advanced for most treatments to be successful. Minorities are at a higher risk to have lung cancer detected in late stages than the general population. This project provides at no cost to participants a preliminary assessment of potential risk of lung cancer through an online survey, and for those who are deemed high risk, a low-dose computerized tomography (LDCT) scan at any Genesis Imaging Center.

⚛ Chernobyl Cancer Study Confirms Risk ⚛
All studies cited… New study reviewed Kashcheev et al. (2014). Incidence and mortality of solid cancer among emergency workers of the Chernobyl accident: assessment of radiation risks for the follow-up period of 1992-2009. Radiation and Environmental Biophysics. Oct 15. http://pubmed.gov/25315643 Meta-analyses of radiation-worker studies cited @ 1:56 Jacob et al. (2009). Is cancer risk of radiation workers larger than expected? Occupational and Environmental Medicine, 66(12):789–96. http://pubmed.gov/19570756 Relevant quote of Jacob: "The ICRP and BEIR VII base their DDREFs mainly on radiobiological results including animal data, which, in their majority, suggest a characteristically low risk for low-dose-rate exposures. It remains an open question as to why this characteristic is apparently not reflected in the human epidemiological data." Cardis et al. (2007). The 15-Country Collaborative Study of Cancer Risk among Radiation Workers in the Nuclear Industry: estimates of radiation-related cancer risks. Radiation Research, 167(4):396-416. http://pubmed.gov/17388693 Relevant quote of Cardis: "Risk estimates per unit dose from this study are statistically compatible with estimates that serve as the basis for current radiation protection standards. They range from values lower than the BEIR VII estimates up to values that exceed these estimates by a factor of about six for both solid cancers and leukemia. This is the largest analytical epidemiological study of the effects of low-dose protracted exposures to ionizing radiation to date." So the radiation-worker epidemiology (involving slow-dose rates) match or exceed the risk of BEIR VII, which is based on the atomic-bomb cohort (involving a fast-dose rate). So it seems dubious that slow dose rates are less harmful, and Kashcheev (2014) adds to that impression. Other Chernobyl worker solid-cancer studies cited @ 2:05 Rahu et al. (2013).

Medical Radiation and cancer risk: assessing the price of progress
Medical Radiation and cancer risk: assessing the price of progress Air date: Friday, January 11, 2013, 12:00:00 PM Category: NIH Director's Seminars Runtime: 01:02:02 Description: NIH Director's Seminar Radiation exposure to the US population from diagnostic imaging has increased 6-fold in the last three decades, primarily due to the rapid increase in CT scans from 1 to 80 million per year. Despite the great medical benefits there are concerns about the potential future cancer risks from CT and other higher dose imaging tests such as nuclear medicine cardiac stress tests. Dr. Berrington's Radiation Epidemiology Branch conducted the first study to directly assess the cancer risks after CT scans in a historical cohort study of 200,000 children in the UK. Dr. Berrington will discuss the first results from this study and also present risk projections for the number of future cancers in the US that may be related to diagnostic imaging in children and adults if use continues at current levels. Recently a number of new screening tests such as lung CT and CT colonography have been proposed for use in the general population, and newer radiotherapy techniques like proton therapy have become more widespread. Dr. Berrington will also describe work that she has conducted that assesses the balance of the potential benefits against the radiation-related cancer risks for these emerging technologies.

Invisible Impact: The Risk of Ionizing Radiation on Cath Lab Staff
This video tells the story of one of the world’s most prominent cardiovascular surgeons, Dr. Edward Diethrich, and the career-altering health issues he has faced as a result of chronic, low-level exposure to ionizing radiation through his work. Catheter-based technology has enabled the minimally invasive treatment of conditions that previously required invasive surgery. However, as the number of interventional procedures performed each day continues to rise, an unforeseen trade-off relates to the health of the medical professionals who perform these procedures and are exposed to procedure-related ionizing radiation. Existing scientific evidence points to an alarming incidence of cancer, cataracts and other serious adverse health effects among these professionals, including interventional cardiologists, endovascular surgeons, interventional radiologists and neurointerventionalists, as well as fluoroscopy lab employees. The Organization for Occupational Radiation Safety in Interventional Fluoroscopy (ORSIF) was formed to raise awareness of the health risks of occupational ionizing radiation exposures and associated musculoskeletal risks occurring in interventional fluoroscopy laboratories. ORSIF develops support for medical professionals and hospitals for new and better ways to create the safest possible work environment for those dedicated to the wellness of others. The organization is comprised of members from industry and also includes physicians and staff from interventional fluoroscopy labs, and will partner with other physician associations, academic institutions, labor groups, and government bodies.

Saving lives with the right dose of radiation
Treating patients with the correct amount of radiation is essential to help cure cancer. When the dose is too high, it can be harmful to the patient, when it's too low, cancer cells will not respond and the cancer will not be cured. Dosimetry is used to determine the necessary dose of radiation. Produced By: International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)

Does the low dose CT lung cancer screening have any dangers or side effects?
There are no side effects of a low dose CT lung cancer screening other than the low dose of radiation which is less than that of a mammogram. Oak Hill Hospital’s low dose CT lung screening is covered by most insurance, Medicare and Medicaid and the self-pay rate is $150 for eligible patients. Patients must speak with and obtain an order from their doctor prior to having the screening.

Informal interview - testimony of a breast cancer survivor patient at the Valley Cancer Institute, Los Angeles, California, the day she was leaving the clinic. The treatment used to cure the breast cancer was Hyperthermia, gentle heat treatment, combined with low radiation dose. This treatment has virtually no side effects, non invasive, and it's very easy to apply. _______________________________________________________ "In July, I was just taking a shower, and realized that I hadn't examined myself in a while, so I did, and I felt a really big lump in my right breast...I did some tests, and they came back saying that it was positive with cancer." "My mother does have cancer, and she did it through the chemo, and radiation, and surgery, and she's had a very, very rough time of it. I started looking for alternative things and came up with VCI." "I've been here about five months...I was concerned about where I was to live. VCI provided the apartment, and I'm paying rent and staying there...it's cheaper to come here, and stay in the apartments, then it would have to stay and drive to my treatments there...It's been a very wonderful experience. The people here are just wonderful, they helped me along. Of course they teased me about my Texas accent." "I didn't get sick, I didn't get nauseated...you just lay down on the table, and let them heat whatever part of the body you needed, and take a nap!" "I would try and convince them 100% to come here. It's awesome. You don't have to go through the surgery, the sickness, the hair loss, the nausea. You're just able to enjoy it, and relax, have your treatment, go party. Sight see, go to the beach. You're here 2 hours in the day, Monday through Friday, you've got the weekends to yourself." "It was stage 3 when I came, it was 4.5 cm. It's now 1 cm, it's dead, and I know that over time it will dissolve and go away." _______________________________________________________ Hyperthermia and low radiation dose is the most effective and less or no side effects cancer treatment available world wide, and now days. http://BreastCancer.org - Breast Cancer Treatment Information and Pictures Breast Cancer Information from a Nonprofit Organization. http://www.breastcancer.org/ - Cached - Similar pages - Breast Cancer Treatment & Side Effects In recent years, there's been an explosion of life-saving treatment advances against breast cancer, bringing new hope and excitement. ...Hyperthermia- Radiation Therapy - Chemotherapy - Hormonal Therapy - Surgery http://www.breastcancer.org/treatment/ Breast Cancer Treatment - National Cancer Institute Expert-reviewed information summary about the treatment of breast cancer. http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/treatment/breast/patient - Cached - Similar pages - Breast Cancer: Treatment - National Cancer Institute Expert-reviewed information summary about the treatment of breast cancer. ...

Doing More with Less: Radiation Doses Dropping - Mayo Clinic
Many misconceptions exist about the risks associated with radiation doses and CT scans. Experts at Mayo Clinic want patients to have the right information about radiation dose, including when to have procedures with radiation, such as a CT scan, versus when to have magnetic resonance imaging or other non-radiation tests. Since 2001, a team of diagnostic radiologists and medical physicists at Mayo Clinic have been actively developing and implementing new techniques to lower doses from CT. They have installed new CT scanners and software and implemented new scanning instructions to lower the doses for more than 100 different CT protocols. Amy Hara, M.D., a diagnostic radiologist at Mayo Clinic Arizona, says that doses have dropped more than 50 percent for several scan types. She emphasizes that their goal is to reduce the radiation dose without compromising the image quality — and advances in technology are making that possible.

New Brain Cancer Treatment Sees Results
Cancer doctors at Cleveland Clinic are treating the brain tumors through a new radiation treatment called perfection. This new brain cancer treatment involves delivering a high dose of radiation to a small target. In this case, 192 radiation beams are pointed around the head towards the tumor. Each beam carries a low dose of radiation but where they intersect the dose is high enough to kill the tumor without damaging healthy tissue around it. This radiation treatment is available for a variety of brain tumors allowing treatment anywhere within the brain and limits the amount of radiation to the patient and medical worker. It also allows greater flexibility of how specialists can sculpt or shape the radiation beam. For more information on brain tumor treatment, please visit http://www.clevelandclinic.org/braintumor.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The best way to catch lung cancer early is through early detection, says Dr. David Carbone, Director of the James Thoracic Center at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center -- Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC- James). Lung cancer is the number one killer of both men and women in the United States, killing more people than colon, breast and prostate cancers combined. This year alone, more than 226,000 men and women in the United States will be diagnosed with lung cancer, and 160,000 will die from the disease. Other major cancer killers -- for example breast and colon -- each have accepted screening strategies -- mammograms and colonoscopies -- for early detection. "Until recently, there was really no early detection test for lung cancer proven to reduce deaths from this disease," Carbone says. "Unfortunately, without screening, most cases of lung cancer are diagnosed when they have already spread to other parts of the body and are incurable." The National Lung Screening Trial -- a major study of heavy smokers -- compared computed tomography (CT) scans and chest X-rays and showed that having a lung CT scan significantly lowered the risk of dying of lung cancer. Based on these findings, OSUCCC -- James now provides lung cancer screenings to those at high risk of developing lung cancer. The screenings, which involve one low-dose CT scan each year for a three-year period, are available from 4-6 p.m. every other Monday on the second floor of the Martha Morehouse Medical Pavilion, 2050 Kenny Road. Each scan will cost $99. To qualify for the screenings, participants must be 55-74 years old, be a current smoker with a history of smoking two packs per day for 15 years or one pack per day for 30 years, or be an ex-smoker who has quit within the past 15 years. "Even better than early detection of lung cancer is preventing it in the first place, so smoking cessation is clearly important and is an integral part of our screening program," Carbone says. "However, CT screening is not perfect as there are many people who develop lung cancer who never smoked and these cancers would not be detected by these screening CT's so further work needs to be done to prevent lung cancer in these people and to detect it early." The National Lung Screening Trial showed a 20 percent reduction in lung cancer mortality, says Dr. Patrick Nana-Sinkam, pulmonologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and part of the multi-disciplinary lung cancer team at Ohio State's Comprehensive Cancer Center -- James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. "Our lung cancer screening program provides results to the patient within a few minutes," says Nana-Sinkam. "The main goal is to look for asymptomatic spots on the lung. About 80 percent of lung cancers are smoking-related, which is why this group is targeted to have these early screenings, before the lung cancer is advanced." To schedule a screening, call The James Line at (800) 293-5066. The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center -- Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute strives to create a cancer-free world by integrating scientific research with excellence in education and patient-centered care, a strategy that leads to better methods of prevention, detection and treatment. Ohio State is one of only 41 National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers and one of only seven centers funded by the NCI to conduct both phase I and phase II clinical trials. The NCI recently rated Ohio State's cancer program as "exceptional," the highest rating given by NCI survey teams. As the cancer program's 228-bed adult patient-care component, The James is a "Top Hospital" as named by the Leapfrog Group and one of the top cancer hospitals in the nation as ranked by U.S. News & World Report.
