(Poster 484, Exhibit Hall, Wednesday, November 2, 12:30 PM -2:00 PM)
In patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) the size of a patient's lung mass is correlated with the presence of brain metastases. After reviewing the CT chest scans of 35 patients with NSCLC, who had brain metastases, and 35 others without brain metastases, researchers at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center, New Jersey, discovered that the presence of lung mass equal to or greater than 3.9 cm predicts the presence of brain metastases.

These smoking rates dropped to 64 percent of boys and 57 percent of girls among the students who participated in sports for 8 or more hours per week. Survey results also show that the media's messages about tobacco have a bigger impact on students than messages they are taught in school.
