BACKGROUND Little is known about the histopathology and prognosis of persistent pure ground-glass opacity nodules (GGNs) of ≥ 10 mm in diameter. We aimed to compare the morphologic features of persistent pure GGNs of ≥ 10 mm in diameter at thin-section CT (TSCT) scan with histopathology and patient prognosis. METHODS A total of 46 resected GGNs that were evaluated with TSCT scan and followed up for ≥ 3 years were included in this study. Correlations between histopathology (adenocarcinoma in… CONTINUE READING
