Congratulations to Vineet for the acceptance of his manuscript by the medical journal Thorax! The paper is entitled “Feasibility of lung cancer prediction from low-dose CT scan and smoking factors using causal models” and it presents LCCM (Lung Cancer Causal Model), a new predictor of cancer nodules from low-dose CT scan data and clinical variables. LCCM improves on current state-of-the-art models and, based on the results in our validation cohort, it could reduce substantially the unnecessary follow up screenings of people with benign nodules.
