OBJECTIVE We sought to verify that the size of the solid component, which can be evaluated using the computed tomography mediastinal-window setting, provides new criteria for CT classification of lung adenocarcinoma. METHODS Between 1994 and September 2002, we examined 60 patients who were clinically classified with stage T1 adenocarcinoma of the lung and normal serum CEA, who underwent standard surgical procedures. Tumor maximum dimension was evaluated using two different CT-imaging settings… CONTINUE READING
