Guidelines for management of small pulmonary nodules detected on CT scans: a statement from the Fleischner Society.
Lung nodules are detected very commonly on computed tomographic (CT) scans of the chest, and the ability to detect very small nodules improves with each new generation of CT scanner. In reportedExpand

Automatic detection of small lung nodules on CT utilizing a local density maximum algorithm
Increasingly, computed tomography (CT) offers higher resolution and faster acquisition times. This has resulted in the opportunity to detect small lung nodules, which may represent lung cancers atExpand

CT-determined pulmonary artery diameters in predicting pulmonary hypertension.
This study was to determine if the diameters of pulmonary arteries measured from computed tomographic (CT) scans could be used 1) as indicators of pulmonary artery hypertension and 2) as a reliableExpand

High-resolution CT of benign asbestos-related diseases: clinical and radiographic correlation.
We prospectively analyzed benign asbestos-related pleural and parenchymal abnormalities on high-resolution CT scans and correlated them with clinical diagnoses in 100 asbestos-exposed workers. Expand

High-resolution CT of the lungs: an optimal approach.
The influences of kilovolt peak, milliamperage, reconstruction algorithm, targeting, and image magnification on thin-section (1.5-mm) computed tomography (CT) of the lung were studied in phantoms andExpand

High-resolution CT diagnosis of emphysema in symptomatic patients with normal chest radiographs and isolated low diffusing capacity.
To determine the prevalence of "nonobstructive" (impairment of gas transfer) emphysema in a select population of smokers with dyspnea, a retrospective study of patients with emphysema evident atExpand
