The Enhancing Rim: A New Sign of a Benign Pulmonary Nodule
- CT lung scans may increase CA survival rates. Moore, Amy Slugg // RN;Feb99, Vol. 62 Issue 2, p90
Reports that calculating the growth rate of lung tumors by comparing their volumes in sequential computed tomography scans makes it possible to detect lung tumors in their earliest stages.
- PET Before Knife. // ASRT Scanner;Jun/Jul2014, Vol. 46 Issue 5, p11
The article discusses a study that found the use of oncologic pre-operative positron emission tomography (PET) to see the degree of metastasis while lungs are in action to avoid unnecessary surgery as conducted by Dr. Steven Zeliadt and published in the "Journal of Nuclear Medicine."
- Experts Are Cautious, Optimistic About Detecting Lung Cancers Earlier. Fintor, Lou // JNCI: Journal of the National Cancer Institute;10/06/99, Vol. 91 Issue 19, p1606
Focuses on a study by researchers in New York and Montreal, Quebec that helical low-dose computed tomography scanning appears to be useful in detecting malignant lung tumors. Why the study has stirred interest in the research community; Possible cause of small non-malignant abnormalities.
- CT screening for lung cancer finds more cancers, after more investigations. // BMJ: British Medical Journal;6/1/2013, Vol. 346 Issue 7910, p11
The article reports that lung cancer screening with computed tomography (CT) prevents more deaths from lung cancer as compared with a chest radiograph and states that CT screening is sensitive but less specific requiring follow up imaging.
- The Advance and New Methods Explore of Pulmonary Tiny Lesions Preoperative Localization. Liang ZHAN; Yang SHEN-TU // Chinese Journal of Lung Cancer;Jun2012, Vol. 15 Issue 6, p381
Pulmonary peripheral tiny lesions are difficult to be localized during operation. The current each preoperative localization methods still exist defects and limited to application which can not adapt to urgent need for increasing numbers of the clinical pulmonary tiny lesions. This paper intends...
- Value of delayed 18F-FDG PET in the diagnosis of solitary pulmonary nodule. Khan, Ali Nawaz; AL-Jahdali, Hamdan // Journal of Thoracic Disease;Jun2013, Vol. 5 Issue 3, p373
Performing dual point 18F-FDG PET scans of solitary pulmonary nodules at an initial SUV (max) <2.5 is a useful technique. However, prolonging second image acquisition from 120 to 180 min does not appear to improve accuracy. Dual time 18F-FDG PET is not useful in differentiating benign and...
- Synchronous Bilateral Multiple Typical Pulmonary Carcinoid Tumors: A Unique Case with 10 Typical Carcinoids. Yazıcıoğlu, Alkın; Yekeler, Erdal; Bıcakcıoğlu, Pınar; Özaydın, Esra; Karaoğlanoğlu, Nurettin // Balkan Medical Journal;Dec2012, Vol. 29 Issue 4, p450
Bilateral multiple typical carcinoid tumors of the lung are uncommon malignancies. We discuss the case of a 64 year-old female with a nonproductive cough as the initial symptom. Thoracic computed tomography revealed multiple nodular lesions on both sides, which were initially misdiagnosed as...
- One Case of Multiple Inflammatory Pseudotumor in Both Lungs. Xin LI; Sen WEI; Qinghua ZHOU; Jun CHEN // Chinese Journal of Lung Cancer;Apr2012, Vol. 15 Issue 4, p246
Inflammatory pseudotumor was a kind of rare benign tumor of the lung, whose incidence was only about 0.7% in all kinds of tumors of the lung. Multiple inflammatory pseudotumor in both lungs were rare, which were often misdiagnosed to metastatic tumor or disseminated pulmonary tuberculosis. The...
