Using enhanced imaging to improve lung cancer patient treatment options

Imaging a better future for Yorkshire lung cancer patients

This is a new Yorkshire Cancer Research funded study at the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals which will assess when novel medical images are most useful to doctors treating lung cancer patients.

This project focuses on using advanced lung images to select the best treatment option (surgery or radiotherapy) for patients with lung cancer.

By providing the best individual treatment option, the programme hopes to improve survival and quality of life for those undergoing treatment and improve the chances of a cure for lung cancer patients in Yorkshire and across the UK.
