THE SOLITARY PULMONARY NODULE,IMAGING,PRESENTATION & DIFF DIAGNOSIS
Author: SUMAIRA MACDONALD
The pathophysiology, categorization, and imaging of solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs) are reviewed in The Solitary Pulmonary Nodule: Imaging, Presentation, and Differential Diagnosis. This book features several illustrations, showcasing conditions such as lung hamartomas, pleural fibromas, sarcoidosis, bronchial carcinogens, and bronchoceles. It also explores various mediastinal cysts, investigating them with cross-sectional imaging as well as plain radiographs. The diagnostic tools employed encompass chest radiographs, computed tomography (CT), and both axial and high-resolution scans. Ultrasound has gained prominence, with applications in trans-thoracic, intrabronchial, and transbronchial procedures, as well as dual transbronchial and transthoracic techniques for obtaining tissue for histological diagnosis. Furthermore, MRI is increasingly utilized for tissue characterization. Radionuclide imaging, such as PET/CT, provides both functional and anatomical tissue diagnosis and is an evolving technique.
