A calcified adenocarcinoma of the lung with very high CT numbers.

Abstract

A case is reported of a man with a solitary pulmonary nodule that had an average CT number of 366 HU. Biopsy of the lesion demonstrated a primary adenocarcinoma of the lung with diffuse calcification. It is concluded that high CT numbers of solitary nodules do not ensure a benign lesion.
