The video is an overview of my work in the last 3.75 years at the Institute of Anatomy. It was the talk I gave as my PhD-Defense. My main work was the radiation-optimized increase in the field of view of tomographic imaging stations, thus most of the time of my talk was spent on this.
A research team led by scientists at MD Anderson Cancer Center report that 2 specific common inherited
genetic variations are associated with increased risk of lung cancer for smokers and former smokers.
Dr. Amos talks about how the findings are a major step forward in identifying those at high risk for
non-small cell lung cancer and for understanding how smoking and genetic factors interact to cause the disease.
