Lung cancer screening by using low-dosage computed tomography.

ACR now accepts applications for new Lung Cancer Screening Middle program The American University of Radiology is now accepting applications because of its new ACR Lung Tumor Screening Middle program, which recognizes facilities focused on providing quality screening care to patients at the best risk for lung cancer. Lung cancer screening by using low-dosage computed tomography , along with appropriate follow-up care, significantly reduces lung cancer deaths and is cost effective in comparison to other major malignancy screening programs. Facilities applying for the Lung Tumor Screening Center designation must have an active ACR CT accreditation in the chest module, and also meet specific equipment, personnel and imaging process requirements.About 9 % of undergrads misused sedatives, and 44 % said it had been easy or very easy to have them on campus. The reasons university students misuse prescription medications have changed through the years, according to Kenneth Hale, a clinical professor of pharmacy at Ohio State and associate director of its ADVANCED SCHOOLING Center for Alcohol and Drug Misuse Prevention and Recovery. At one time, college students most misused medications to get high commonly. But today, students use medicines to self-medicate also, to control their lives. They are employing drugs to control pain, to visit sleep, to alleviate anxiety and to research, he said in the news release.
