Assessing probability of malignancy in solid solitary pulmonary nodules with a new Bayesian calculator: improving diagnostic accuracy by means of expanded and updated features


A crucial point in the work-up of a solitary pulmonary nodule (SPN) is to accurately characterise the lesion on the basis of imaging and clinical data available. We introduce a new Bayesian calculator as a tool to assess and grade SPN risk of malignancy. A set of 343 consecutive biopsy or interval proven SPNs was used to develop a calculator to predict SPN… (More)
