The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) released the latest global cancer burden data for 2020.
In 2020, there were 9.96 million cancer deaths worldwide. There were 1.8 million lung cancer deaths, ranking first among cancer deaths.
The top 10 cancers with the number of new cancer cases in China in 2020 are: lung cancer, colorectal cancer, gastric cancer, breast cancer, liver cancer, esophageal cancer, thyroid cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, and cervical cancer.These 10 types of cancer accounted for 78% of new cancers.Among them, the number of new cases of lung cancer ranks first!
In 2020, the number of cancer deaths in China is 3 million, and lung cancer deaths are far ahead, reaching 710,000, accounting for 23.8% of all cancer deaths.
What causes lung cancer?
Lung cancer is a common malignant tumor of the respiratory system. It ranks first in the country in terms of morbidity and mortality. At present, lung cancer patients are more likely to think that it is the result of the interaction of factors. Common lung cancer incidence factors include smoking and the atmosphere. Pollution, ionizing radiation, genetic factors, malnutrition and other conditions.
What are the screening measures for lung cancer?
Chest X-ray is one of the most commonly used methods to diagnose lung cancer.A chest X-ray allows the doctor to see the patient’s lungs, heart, and blood vessels, and is usually the first imaging test performed when there are symptoms of lung cancer.
A powerful tool for lung cancer screening-dynamic flat DRF!
Dynamic Flat Panel DRF is an all-round inspection assistant suitable for various departments. One device can realize digital photography, fluoroscopy, imaging and special imaging functions.
For the examination of lung diseases, it is a screening tool! The inspection is done with dynamic flat-panel DRF equipment, rapid and accurate imaging, short exposure time, large-size high-definition images, dynamic acquisition up to 30 frames per second, providing accurate basis for clinical diagnosis, and avoiding missed diagnosis and misdiagnosis.
The SID can be stretched to 1.8 meters to meet the shooting needs of standard chest radiographs and special photography needs (for example, the diagnostic criteria for occupational pneumoconiosis requires a chest radiograph distance of 1.8 meters).
Advantages of dynamic flat DRF in lung cancer examination
The anatomical position of the lung is located in the thoracic cavity, on both sides of the mediastinum, with the heart on the left side and covered by the ribs. In the X-ray image:
1. Small lesions are easily covered by images such as ribs and heart shadows, especially early lung cancer is difficult to diagnose on chest radiographs.
2. The dynamic flat DRF has the function of visual operation, which can perform multi-angle observation during the fluoroscopy process, which can accurately locate small lesions and avoid misdiagnosis and misdiagnosis.
3. In routine imaging, especially when imaging lung tumors and nodules, it is easy to miss out due to overlap of images and insufficient experience of physicians.
The dynamic flat DRF film is a two-dimensional image, especially a chest radiograph. It is difficult to diagnose accurately due to the overlapping images of the chest mediastinum and the overlap of the ribs under the diaphragm. The above description, if it is only a static chest image, coupled with the lack of experience of the examiner, it is easy to miss the diagnosis. The visual operation and high-definition spot film function of the dynamic flat DRF can well solve such problems, clarify the location of the disease, reduce missed diagnosis and misdiagnosis, and improve the accuracy of diagnosis.
