Program called Computer-aided Nodule Assessment and Risk Yield, or Canary, provides noninvasive method to test for cancer.
Researchers hope to soon be able to test our breath for a wide range of "biomarkers" -- molecules that could indicate the presence of a particular disease.
Researchers at Case Western Reserve say the artificial lung they developed, which uses air instead of pure oxygen as a ventilating gas, is as efficient as the organ it mimics.
One team of scientists implants functional lab-made lung tissue into rats, while another makes a microdevice that mimics real lungs and could be used to test drugs.
Israeli researchers have developed a sensor made from gold nanoparticles that distinguishes between the breath of those with lung cancer from those without.
Researchers unveil new ways to improve the accuracy of CT scans as well as speed up the time it takes to find telltale changes in lung tissue that hint at lung cancer.
Work begins on Athena, a $19 million project that seeks to create artificial organs that work in concert inside a human-like test dummy that could reduce reliance on animal testing.
Due out later this year, the case promises to keep track of your blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, and other vital stats.
Scientists build a functional kidney that can be transplanted into a rat and go about its urine-making work.
In a discovery by a Harvard researcher, a reactivated gene found in embryos helps mice regrow clipped parts of their ears and toes. Could the "fountain of youth" gene hold promise for humans too?
