Abstract

 We developed a personal interactive management platform based on Android system called lung cancer prevention assistant. A mathematical model for quantifying the cancer occurrence risk was established. This healthcare system collects users lifestyle events, such as tobacco smoking and diet structure, as input parameters. After comprehensive and quantitative analysis, the system would figure out the relative risk (RR) value of lung cancer morbidity and suggest guiding tips for lung cancer prevention. People with Android smart mobile phone or PDA (Personal Digital Assistant, such as widely used Pad) can access this management system easily, with the fact that Android smart phone is widely used over the world. This may possibly reduce the cost of medicine paid on the treatment and recovery of cancer. Advantages and possible applications of the present system were outlined. We also discussed the shortage of the lung cancer prevention assistant and suggest its potential solutions in the near future.
