BACKGROUND AND AIM Acoustic lung imaging offers a unique method for visualising the lung. This study was designed to demonstrate reproducibility of acoustic lung images recorded from healthy individuals at different time points and to assess intra- and inter-rater agreement in the assessment of dynamically represented acoustic lung images.

BACKGROUND Lung cancer screening using low-dose CT (LDCT) was shown to reduce lung cancer mortality by 20% in the National Lung Screening Trial. METHODS The pilot UK Lung Cancer Screening (UKLS) is a randomised controlled trial of LDCT screening for lung cancer versus usual care. A population-based questionnaire was used to identify high-risk individuals.(More)
BACKGROUND Fibroblastic foci profusion on histopathology and severity of traction bronchiectasis on highresolution computed tomography (HRCT) have been shown to be predictors of mortality in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between fibroblastic foci (FF) profusion and HRCT patterns(More)
BACKGROUND The UK Lung Cancer Screening (UKLS) trial is a randomised pilot trial of low-dose CT (LDCT) screening for individuals at high risk of lung cancer. We assessed the long-term psychosocial impact on individuals participating in the UKLS trial. METHODS A random sample of individuals aged 50-75 years was contacted via primary care. High-risk(More)

The high temperature operation of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) is one of the main challenges we have to overcome, especially for commercializing SOFC for portable power generating applications [1]. Solid state electrolytes with enhanced oxygen ionic conductivity at low and intermediate temperatures are needed to lower the operating temperature of SOFC [2].(More)
