World Lung Day (WLD) on September 25 is a day of awareness and action for lung health, a chance for all of us to come together and promote improved lung health around the world. Hundreds of millions of people around the world are affected by...

One emerging application for dual-energy X-ray subtraction is the opportunistic detection of coronary calcifications. Coronary artery calcifications (CAC), or the presence of calcium buildups in arteries that supply blood to the heart, is common in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD)3.   A 2021 update by the American Heart Association maintains that CHD is the leading cause of death attributable to cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the US. CVD accounted for approximately 18.6 million...
