Carmen Endress's Radiography approach helps to diagnose Mesothelioma at an earlier stage
Saturday, April 4, 2009
A new approach is found out to diagnose mesothelioma and asbestos related diseases at an earlier stage which would play a significant role in reducing the death rate among those affected by asbestos exposure. Michael Harbut who is the co-director of the National center for Vermiculite and Asbestos-Related Cancers (NCVAC) at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit, Michigan, believes the new approach could make a significant impact on public health.

Dr. Carmen Endress, Associate Professor of Radiology at Wayne State University School of Medicine, developed a new radiology approach which allows us to visualize lesions caused by asbestos exposure in three dimensional detail and often at a much earlier stage than that of the current standard radiographic techniques. This new approach enhances images obtained from a 64-slice high resolution CT scan by using the Vitrea(R) imaging software program developed by Vital Images, Inc.

Advantages of Carmen Endress Radiography approach
  • Earlier detection
  • Better differentiation between patients with scarring on the lungs and other illnesses
  • Increased success in the overall diagnosis and treatment of asbestos-related disease and mesothelioma.
