This session will use a case-based method to review issues related to the characterization of solitary pulmonary nodules, with a focus on the use of thin-section CT for analysis. Proper lesion measurement, density and margin characterization, and proper technical/display parameters will be reviewed. The Fleischner guidelines for the assessment and management of incidental lung nodules will be highlighted.
- Describe the proper method of measuring lung nodules on CT
- Apply the Fleischner guidelines for the recommended management of small incidental lung nodules.
