Lung Cancer: An Up and Coming Device Market

Lung cancer is the number one cause of deaths from cancer, in large part because it generally isn't detected until very late stages. At that point, survival rates are low and the only option is radical lung surgery. But now imaging technologies can detect smaller cancers, sooner, and in the wake of the publication of the Early Lung Cancer Action Project, the medical device industry is preparing for a paradigm shift. Start-ups are now developing technologies to remove the barriers in diagnosis and access that hinder therapeutic intervention.
