Lung Cancer

Lung Cancer

A profound understanding of the facetted characteristics and behavior of a tumor demands deep and integrated knowledge among clinical experts collaborating in interdisciplinary teams – a joint effort to empower personalized cancer care. By strategically combining advanced imaging, IT, and laboratory applications as well as therapy, lung cancer management can be improved along the patient pathway. Explore our holistic portfolio for lung cancer and discover how our advanced solutions support you every step of the pathway – from screening to follow-up.
  1. Explore our portfolio of ultra-low-dose CT scanners and AI tools that support you in your diagnostic assessments of lung cancer nodules during screening.


Detecting early-stage lung cancer with low-dose CT scanning can dramatically improve the long-term survival rate of lung cancer patients. A study4 shows that patients diagnosed with lung cancer by low-dose CT screening have a 20-year survival rate of 81%. If diagnosed in the earliest Stage I and if adequate therapy has been applied, long-term survival was 95%. This emphasizes the benefit to establish screening programs for earlier detection. Our ultra-low-dose CT scanners and AI tools help you deliver confident and accurate screening outcomes.

Low-dose CT scanners for lung cancer screening

Ultra-low-dose CT scanners

Our CT scanners come with advanced technology inside that allows ultra-low-dose, non-contrast chest CT scans for a screening examination.

Lung cancer workflow powered by AI solutions

Smart AI tools

A smart augmented reading aid and AI-powered workflow solution help reduce repetitive tasks and supports diagnostic precision by detecting and highlighting possible nodules.


Therapy monitoring and follow-up in lung cancer are key to personalizing patient care. Monitoring tumor response allows for timely adjustment of the chosen therapy. Three challenges have to be met: timely communication, medical data management, and thorough patient engagement.
