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...

Abstract Space radiation cancer risk may be a potential obstacle for long-duration spaceflight. Among all types of cancer space radiation may induce, lung cancer has been estimated to be the largest potential risk. Although previous animal study has shown that Fe ions, the most important contributor to the total dose equivalent of space radiation, induced a higher incidence of lung tumorigenesis per dose than X-rays, the underlying mechanisms at cellular level remained unclear. Therefore, in the present study, we investigated long-term biological changes in NL20 human bronchial epithelial cells after exposure to F...
