Abstract: we suggest that no additional diagnostic evaluation need be performed (Grade 2C) .Remark : This recommendation applies only to solid nodules. For guidance about follow-up of subsolid nodules, see Recommendations 6.5.1 to 6.5.4 . 2.3.3.In the individual with an indeterminate nodule that is identifi ed by chest radiography, we recommend that CT of the chest should be performed (preferably with thin sections Objectives: The objective of this article is to update previous evidence-based recommendations for evaluat… Show more

“…3f for comparison. The diagnosis of subcentimetric nodules is challenging even with standard guidelines [3,13,14]. In the first case, we demonstrated that subcentimetric nodules could be reached with this technique.…”

“…The Mayo Clinic model is an older model that does not incorporate FDG-PET scan results or patient symptoms, but it is the only validated model to receive recommendation by the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP). 4,12 The VA model has limited input for radiographic characteristics of the lesion but was specifically developed in a VA population.…”

“…The ACCP and the National Cancer Comprehensive Network practice guidelines detail an evidence-based algorithm for the diagnosis of lung cancer 4,23 Upon discovery of a nodule, lesion or lung mass, non-invasive diagnosis and staging of the patient is conducted using chest CT. The guidelines recommend that in patients who are operative candidates, clinicians estimate the probability of lung cancer using their clinical expertise or by use of a validated diagnostic prediction model.…”

“…Nodules were classified as benign or malignant on the basis of histology, or benign on the basis of stable volume for at least 2 years after the baseline CT [17,18]. In addition, nodules were classified on the basis of distance to costal pleura (peripheral or non-peripheral), shape (spherical or non-spherical) and margin (smooth, lobulated, spiculated or irregular) [8,16,19].…”
