“…Multiplanar images display anatomic features in a frontal view fashion and have been found to enhance the usefulness of cross-sectional imaging modalities, such as CT and MRI. [5][6][7][8] Because of the more natural anatomic relationships depicted in these reformations, radiographic images may now be easier for laypersons to comprehend, making them more useful for counseling.…”

“…However, section thickness has a significant effect on bias and precision, particularly for smaller nodules. In this study, the measurements obtained using the 0.625-mm section thickness were superior, with minimal bias and maximal precision across all reference-standard diameters [23]. Use of the 5.00-mm section thickness yielded inferior measurements for 5.00-mm and smaller nodules [24].…”

“…Of those cases exhibiting distant metastases, pulmonary metastases were most common (51.9 per cent). It should be noted that sensitivity of CT for detecting pulmonary nodules less than or equal to 5 mm in diameter is 22–89 per cent (Angelelli and others 2008), so the possibility remains that the patient in the present case exhibited undetected metastatic disease at initial presentation.…”
