A new law passed in Kentucky could reduce diagnosis rates of black lung in the state. The bill backed by Republican Representative Adam Koenig allows only NIOSH-certified pulmonologists to interpret chest x-rays in black lung compensation cases. Previously, B reader radiologists could also read chest radiographs in black lung claims.Black lung has become increasingly common among miners. Around one in 14 miners with at least 25 years of experience are diagnosed with the condition.According to  NPR, there are only six pulmonologists in Kentucky with  NIOSHcertification, the qualification to assess pneumoconiosis &...

The biological method for synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using Bacopa monneri leaves and its anti-proliferation against human lung adenocarcinoma cell line (A549) was studied. The AgNPs synthesis was determined by an ultraviolet–visible spectrum and was confirmed primarily by the colour change and surface plasmon resonance was observed at 450 nm and its reduction of functional groups stretched in AgNPs was identified by Fourier transform infrared and the crystalline nature of AgNPs was confirmed by X-ray diffraction. The structural morphology of the AgNPs was found to be spherical and polygonal shape and...

By HUGH HARVEY, MD Artificial intelligence requires data. Ideally that data should be clean, trustworthy and above all, accurate. Unfortunately, medical data is far from it. In fact medical data is sometimes so far removed from being clean, it’s positively dirty. Consider the simple chest X-ray, the good old-fashioned posterior-anterior radiograph of the thorax. One of the longest standing radiological techniques in the medical diagnostic armoury, performed across the world by the billions. So many in fact, that radiologists struggle to keep up with the sheer volume, and sometimes forget to read the odd 23,000 of the...

Here we assessed the impact of two high-LET ions 56Fe and 28Si, and low-LET X rays on genome-wide methylation patterns in human bronchial epithelial cells. W...

Rapid access to diagnostic tests and specialist opinion is a priority for patients. This retrospective cohort study assessed the efficacy of a fast track email referral for radiologists reporting chest x-rays suggestive of lung cancer. Email referrals were sent to a lung cancer service designated email with consultants then actively triaging these to a one stop lung cancer clinic with a CT scan and specialist consultation. 347 email referrals were received across two years. 182 (52%) were from radiologists and 171 (49%) from alternative specialties. Of the referrals received via the fast track email the mean time to CT che...
