“For the ImaLife project we investigate early imaging biomarkers of cardiovascular disease, lung cancer and chronic obstructive lung diseases. In total, 12,000 Lifelines participants undergo low-dose CT imaging of heart and lungs.”

"Among Lifelines participants, we found that 10% used systemic or local corticosteroids, which implicates that these potential side effects may have important negative effects on public health.”

Prof. dr. Elisabeth van Rossum Professor in the field of obesity and biological stress

"Lifelines offers a broad biobank with many options for research. The possibility to obtain more data of our interest in a timely fashion was also essential for our project. It is great that this data will be available for further studies."
