We present the main reasons for implementing lung cancer screening in high-risk adults and discuss the main issues related to lung cancer screening. We stress the importance of eligibility criteria, smoking cessation programs, primary care physicians, and informed-decision making should lung cancer screening be implemented. Seven years ago, we were waiting for the results of trials. Such evidence is now available. Similar to almost all other cancer screens, uncertainties exist and persist even after recent scientific efforts and data. We believe that by staying within the characteristics of the original trial and appropria...

Publication date: Available online 18 February 2018 Source:Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering Author(s): Saleh Shahbeig, Akbar Rahideh, Mohammad Sadegh Helfroush, Kamran Kazemi An efficient fuzzy interactive multi-objective optimization method is proposed to select the sub-optimal subset of genes from large-scale gene expression data. It is based on the binary particle swarm optimization (BPSO) algorithm tuned by a chaotic method. The proposed method is able to select the sub-optimal subset of genes with the least number of features that can accurately distinguish between the two classes, e.g. the normal and cancer...
