The minimum threshold size for routine follow-up has been increased, and recommended follow-up intervals are now given as a range rather than as a precise time period to give radiologists, clinicians, and patients greater discretion to accommodate individual risk factors and preferences.

Among experienced thoracic radiologists, inter- and intraobserver agreement in differentiating solid from subsolid nodules at CT varies; this variability should be acknowledged when devising recommendations for the management of pulmonary nodules and emphasizes the need for reproducible qualitative methods to assess nodule attenuation.

Objectives The objective of this article is to update previous evidence-based recommendations for evaluation and management of individuals with solid pulmonary nodules and to generate new recommendations for those with nonsolid nodules. Methods We updated prior literature reviews, synthesized evidence, and formulated recommendations by using the methods described in the “Methodology for Development of Guidelines for Lung Cancer” in the American College of Chest Physicians Lung Cancer Guidelines,...

Context Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death. Most patients are diagnosed with advanced disease, resulting in a very low 5-year survival. Screening may reduce the risk of death from lung cancer. Objective To conduct a systematic review of the evidence regarding the benefits and harms of lung cancer screening using low-dose computed tomography (LDCT). A multisociety collaborative initiative (involving the American Cancer Society, American College of Chest Physicians, American Society ...

OBJECTIVE. In the Early Lung Cancer Action Project (ELCAP), we found not only solid but also part-solid and nonsolid nodules in patients at both baseline and repeat CT screening for lung cancer. We report the frequency and significance of part-solid and nonsolid nodules in comparison with solid nodules.MATERIALS AND METHODS. We reviewed all instances of a positive finding in patients at baseline (from one to six noncalcified nodules) and annual repeat screenings (from one to six newly detected n...

Abstract Purpose To determine how implementation of an artificial intelligence nodule algorithm, the Lung Cancer Prediction Convolutional Neural Network (LCP-CNN), at the point of incidental nodule detection would have influenced further investigation and management using a series of threshold scores at both the benign and malignant end of the spectrum. Method An observational retrospective study was performed in the assessment of nodules between 5-15 mm (158 benign, 32 malignant) detected on CT...

Background Growth rate is an independent risk factor for lung cancer in screened pulmonary nodules. This study aimed to clarify growth characteristics of pulmonary nodules in routine clinical practice and examine whether volume doubling time (VDT) can predict the malignancy of these nodules. Methods We retrospectively enrolled patients with 5-30-mm-sized pulmonary nodules that had been surgically resected after a follow-up of at least 3 months. Two follow-up computed tomography (CT) images with ...

A broad differential diagnosis is important to provide appropriate care. This may be challenging for conditions like decompression sickness (DCS) which can be easily confused with other conditions. In suspected DCS, treatment may be an important part of the diagnosis. An improvement in symptoms after hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) is consistent with a DCS event. However, HBOT may also impact symptoms in other conditions, including Lofgren's syndrome (LS). LS, a poorly understood, clinically ...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the FDG-PET and high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) features of early lung adenocarcinoma manifesting as solitary ground-glass opacity nodules (GGNs), and to establish a new risk model for predicting the invasiveness of early lung adenocarcinoma. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the data of clinical stage IA lung adenocarcinoma patients who received preoperative PET/CT and HRCT examination. Patients were divided into invasive adenocarcinoma (IVA) group and preinv...

Abstract Background The rate of detection of pulmonary nodules on computed radiography (CR) is approximately 0.09–0.2%, so rapid identification of the nature of solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs) with a likelihood of malignancy is a critical challenge in the early diagnosis of lung cancer. Objective We conducted this study to compare the diagnostic yield and safety of endobronchial ultrasonography with a guide sheath (EBUS-GS), and the combination of EBUS-GS and virtual bronchoscopic navigation (...
