Helping Smokers Quit Is Cost-Effective

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)

A new report released by the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) finds that smoking cessation interventions are cost-effective. While all types of cessation treatment were found to be cost-effective, those involving more intensive counseling and the nicotine patch proved to be especially worthwhile. Smoking cessation interventions are less costly than other preventive medical interventions such as the treatment of high cholesterol.

Holograms of CT Scans Display Neurovascular & Spine Pathology More Accurately and Clearly Than Software Renderings

Communications Plus

A physician reporting at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting this week will describe how the Digital Holographyô System from VoxelÆ (NASDAQ:VOXL) improves display of cerebral vasculature and reduces or eliminates image artifacts in patients with surgical hardware. Additionally, Voxel will introduce software for previewing three-dimensional holograms on a computer.

University of Iowa study finds that a non-invasive, low-cost test for lung cancer is appropriate for many patients

University of Iowa

When it comes to lung cancer diagnosis sometimes less is more, even in the high-tech world of medicine. That is the message of a University of Iowa study showing that the analysis of sputum -- a low-cost, low-risk method for detecting lung cancer -- makes more sense as an initial diagnostic test for many patients than the more expensive invasive methods. In addition, the potential national savings in testing costs with the adoption of sputum analysis would be at least $30 million per year.

Cell Article: Single Genetic Locus Linked to Top Cancer-Targeted Biochemical Pathways

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

While identifying a new cancer-fighting tumor suppressor gene called ARF, scientists at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital have made another, potentially more far-reaching discovery, that a single genetic locus called INK4a encodes protein products that regulate the most frequently targeted biochemical pathways in human cancers.
