Solitary Pulmonary Nodule

A single lung lesion that is characterized by a small round mass of tissue, usually less than 1 cm in diameter, and can be detected by chest radiography. A solitary pulmonary nodule can be associated with neoplasm, tuberculosis, cyst, or other anomalies in the lung, the CHEST WALL, or the PLEURA.

09/01/2004 - "Although radiologic imaging methods, especially CT, are the most widely used, they have well known constraints, including solitary pulmonary nodule characterisation, mediastinal lymph node staging, characterisation of the remaining tissue after chemo- or radiotherapy and early diagnosis of relapse. "
10/01/2014 - "The practice of treating a solitary pulmonary nodule (SPN) suspicious for stage I non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) in the absence of pathology is growing. "
04/01/2007 - "(18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) is a useful technique to characterize the solitary pulmonary nodule, diagnose primary lung cancer, carry out mediastinal and extrathoracic staging, plan radiotherapy, therapeutic response assessment and detect recurrence. "
09/01/2006 - "Studies have assessed the clinical utility of this imaging modality in characterizing solitary pulmonary nodules or masses, initial staging, defining tumor volume in radiotherapy and searching for recurrence of or restaging non-small cell carcinoma; studies are currently underway to evaluate its use in early assessment of chemotherapy response. "
07/01/2007 - "This can resolve doubts by the oncologist and patient when there is a suspicious malignant lesion by the following: characterizing solitary pulmonary nodules (benign or malignant), localizing the optimal site for the biopsy, diagnosis of the primary tumor for initial staging, evaluation of mediastinal involvement and distant metastasis, evaluate and restage residual tumor, assessment of recurrence, monitoring response, prognostic prediction and radiotherapy planning."
