Researchers from Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine have developed new technology to improve the detection of tumors in patients with early-stage lung cancer.

Their approach uses dual-energy imaging combined with fluoroscopy to view tumors during radiation therapy. This technology does not require an X-ray that produces both high-and low-energy images. Existing hardware can be used to eliminate visuals of the ribs and other bones making it easier to see the tumor.
