Abstract Introduction Deep Learning has been proposed as promising tool to classify malignant nodules. Our aim was to retrospectively validate our Lung Cancer Prediction Convolutional Neural Network (LCP-CNN), which was trained on US screening data, on an independent dataset of indeterminate nodules in an European multicentre trial, to rule out benign nodules maintaining a high lung cancer sensitivity. Methods The LCP-CNN has been trained to generate a malignancy score for each nodule using CT d...

During the COVID-19 pandemic, chest CT is frequently used to help with the diagnosis. The classic CT patterns of COVID-19 pneumonia are well-published and recognised among radiologists. However, wh...

: A best evidence topic was written according to a structured protocol. The question addressed was: in patients with inoperable early-stage primary lung cancer does microwave ablation (MWA) or stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SBRT) achieve improved outcomes in terms of local control, recurrence, survival and complications? Altogether, more than 550 papers were found using the reported search, of which 12 represented the best evidence to answer the clinical question. The authors, journal,...

AIM To determine local control, safety, and survival following percutaneous computed tomography (CT)-guided high-power microwave ablation (MWA) in the treatment of primary lung malignancy at a single institution. MATERIAL AND METHODS From July 2010 to June 2016, 52 patients (mean age 76.3 years, range 55–91 years) with 61 unresectable primary lung cancers of mean diameter 23.8 mm (range 26–55 mm) underwent MWA in 55 ablation sessions. Tumours were diagnosed at biopsy, or positron-emission tomogr...

A 75-year-old man, with hereditary multiple exostoses, had a positron emission tomography (PET)-CT scan for follow-up of an excised chondrosarcoma. Incidentally, he was found to have widespread subpleural cystic change (figure 1A and B) and a cystic right lower lobe lesion (figure 2) adjacent to a rib exostosis. He was referred to the urgent respiratory clinic on the basis of these unusual subpleural cystic findings and concern that the cystic right …
