CT Diagnosis and Management of Focal Lung Disease: Small Pulmonary Nodules
The increasing use of CT, whether for screening for lung cancer or for other reasons, has led to the increasing detection of small pulmonary nodules. It was the development of the knowledge base needed to make scientific recommendations for the work-up of these small nodules that led us to the topic of CT screening for lung cancer .
