WMKY

The Health Matters List show

Nov 16, 2016

Good news: you won’t have to listen long, because this show went south early. Brought to you by lung cancer screening, we discuss how to unlock a cell phone with a dead person’s fingerprint, the Cleveland clinic top medical innovations for 2017, and the “Choosing Wisely UK” recommendations for reducing healthcare costs.

Tip: Before you get your lung CT, you must fulfill three criteria – age 55-75, 30 years smoking, and either current smoking or quit less than 15 years ago. Discuss lung cancer screening with your doctor.
