The lung under the loupe

Dear Sir or Madam,

Lung diseases are among the most frequent causes of death worldwide. A sick or damaged lung should therefore be detected as early as possible. Thanks to modern imaging methods, this can be done better and faster. In our current Topic of the Month you will learn why lung imaging is so difficult and which methods can make it easier to look at the respiratory organ in the near future.

Have an autumnal week,

Elena Blume

The lung, one of the most important human organs for survival, is also examined in this way. In our Topic of the Month, we looked at how doctors are getting a closer look at the lung, how the procedures differ, and which ones will be available in the near future.
