    SPIRAL CT LUNG SCREENING AT DESERT RADIOLOGISTS By Linda Robert Marilyn Raquel Mike MKT 438 Instructor: Kelly Wood July 19, 2000 HISTORY OF DETECTING LUNG CANCER Lung cancer affects more than 170,000 men and women each year. Currently, there isnt a practical or definitive screening method for detecting this disease. Historically, chest x-rays were used to detect cancer when patients presented symptoms. Though chest x-rays can pick up cancerous lesions, it has not been recommended as a routine annual screening tool because it often detects the disease too late when cure is difficult. By the time lung cancer is large enough to be visible on chest x-rays, it is often advanced and may have alrea ...

    ... picking up the cost. Also, for those who cannot afford the test, diagnosis may be unavailable. Desert Radiologists wants to inform everyone by flooding the market with mass publicity and awareness. Information on the disease, procedure, costs and benefits of early detection make the testing appear necessary and desirable. Advertising at various locations hope to produce results which will contribute to the success of testing being requested on a regular basis just like Pap tests and mammograms. By being the first imaging center in Las Vegas to offer this service, Desert Radiologist hopes to capitalize on an untapped market and retain a steady customer base. THE PLAN FOR MARKET SHARE Dese ...

    ... t rabies for a young boy who had been bitten 14 times by a rabid dog. Over the course of ten days, Pasteur injected progressively more virulent rabies organisms into the boy, causing the boy to develop immunity in time to avert death from this disease. Another major milestone in the use of vaccination to prevent disease occurred with the efforts of two American physician-researchers. In 1954 Jonas Salk introduced an injectable vaccine containing an inactivated virus to counter the epidemic of poliomyelitis. Subsequently, Albert Sabin made great strides in the fight against this paralyzing disease by developing an oral vaccine containing a live weakened virus. Since the introduction of th ...

    ... weden, Sjostrom (Sjostrom, 1997) and his colleagues have created a painting application in which the PHANToM can be used by the visually impaired; line thickness varies with the user's force on the fingertip thimble and colors are discriminated by their tactual profile. Marcy, Temkin, Gorman, and Krummel (1998) have developed the Tactile Max, a PHANToM plug-in for 3D Studio Max. Dynasculpt, a prototype from Interval Research Corporation (Snibbe, Anderson, and Verplank, 1998) permits sculpting in three dimensions by attaching a virtual mass to the PHANToM position and constructing a ribbon through the mass's path through the 3D space.
