INTRODUCTION 5% of lung adenocarcinomas harbor rearrangements of the anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) gene. This study compared computed tomography (CT) imaging features in patients with ALK rearrangements and those with EGFR mutations. MATERIAL/METHODS 30 patients with ALK rearrangements were studied. 97 patients with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations were used as controls. Features assessed included size and location of thoracic lymphadenopathy, and the size, contour… CONTINUE READING
