Researchers developed a non-invasive technique to characterise lung cancer

Lung cancer is one of the most common and deadliest in the world. The biopsy is the method used for its diagnosis and characterisation, and although it allows obtaining valuable information, it could lead to certain clinical issues. The LuCaS (Lung cancer screening - A non-invasive methodology for early diagnosis) project aims to make decision support systems in the characterisation of lung cancer more objective and quantitative.
