According to this New Scientist article dogs are 99% and 88% accurate at smelling and detecting lung and breast cancer in patients, with a miniscule 1% and 2% false-positive rate, respectively.
This is very interesting, and could lead to all sorts of reduced-cost detection of treatable cancers, and possibly to better, less invasive electronic testing as well.
