Evaluation of locoregional invasiveness of small-sized non-small cell lung cancers by enhanced dual-energy computed tomography

Abstract

BACKGROUND To investigate the correlation between iodine-related attenuation of dual-energy computed tomography (DE-CT) and the histopathological invasiveness of surgically resected primary non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLCs) ≤ 3 cm in diameter. METHODS We selected 63 consecutive NSCLC lesions from 60 patients (32 males, 28 females; age range, 39-85… (More)
