The aim of this paper is to describe the intratumoural tissue components of solid lung tumours evidenced by macroscopic and/or microscopic examination of the autopsic or surgical specimen and visible on computed tomography (CT) without and with contrast material administration. Seven intratumoural tissue components can be identified both at CT and at pathology: (1) solid component, (2) haemorrhagic component, (3) coagulation necrosis, (4) liquefactive necrosis, (5) parenchymal consolidation, (6… 
Screening for lung cancer using low-dose spiral CT: 10 years later, state of the art
The aim is to present the main theoretical and practical problems related to lung cancer screening, the historical background and results of observational studies and the main ongoing randomised controlled trials.
HIV-infected patients with opportunistic pulmonary infections misdiagnosed as lung cancers: the clinicoradiologic features and initial application of CT radiomics.
Clinoradiologic features together with radiomics may help identify OPIs mimicking lung cancers in HIV-infected patients and there were significant differences in age, proportion of smokers, smoking index, highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) duration, CD4+ counts and CD4/CD8+ ratio between the two groups.
Comparative analysis of clinicoradiologic characteristics of lung adenocarcinomas with ALK rearrangements or EGFR mutations
Solid pattern with lower incidence of lobulated border, finely spiculated margins, pleural retraction, and bubble-like lucency on CT imaging are the main characteristics of ALK rearrangement tumours.
Quantitative volumetric assessment of the solid portion percentage on CT images to predict ROS1/ALK rearrangements in lung adenocarcinomas.
The PSV in the lung adenocarcinomas with ROS1 rearrangement was significantly higher compared with that in the EGFR-mutated and WT lungAdenocARCinoma, but was similar to that in lung adanocarc inoma with ALK rearrangements.
CT texture analysis using the filtration-histogram method: what do the measurements mean?
This article illustrates the image and histological features that correlate with CT texture parameters obtained from tumours using the filtration-histogram approach, which comprises image filTration to highlight image features of a specified size followed by histogram analysis for quantification.
Modeling of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Volume Changes during CT-Based Image Guided Radiotherapy: Patterns Observed and Clinical Implications
The models used in this study performed well in fitting the available dataset and provided useful insights into the possible underlying mechanisms responsible for the RT tumor volume response.


Solitary pulmonary nodule: high-resolution CT and radiologic-pathologic correlation.
Edge and internal characteristics of pulmonary nodules evaluated with high-resolution computed tomography were correlated with the pathologic specimens in 93 patients, and malignant nodules as a group were larger than benign lesions and more commonly demonstrated a spiculated contour, lobulation, and inhomogeneous attenuation.
Factors affecting the radiologic appearance of peripheral bronchogenic carcinomas.
An irregular or indistinct tumor margin may be caused by tumor infiltration, an irregular desmoplastic response to the tumor growth, or irregular contraction in the central portion of the tumor.
Solid or partly solid solitary pulmonary nodules: their characterization using contrast wash-in and morphologic features at helical CT.
The efficacy of SPN evaluation based on analyses of WI values plus morphologic features during HDCT scanning appears to be equivalent to that based on analysis of WI plus WO values, thus obviating the need for WO scans, which saves time and reduces radiation exposure of the patient.
From the archives of the AFIP. Benign tumors and tumorlike lesions of the gallbladder and extrahepatic bile ducts: radiologic-pathologic correlation. Armed Forces Institute of Pathology.
In the clinical setting of a patient with nonspecific abdominal complaints or symptoms of biliary obstruction, the discovery of a gallbladder or bile duct polyp or mass, gallbladders wall thickening, or biliary stricture is most often indicative of malignancy, but the differential diagnosis should include benign tumors and tumorlike lesions.

Integrated PET/CT is more sensitive and accurate than HDCT for the malignant nodule characterization and may be performed as the first-line evaluation tool for SPN characterization because HDCT has high specificity and acceptable sensitivity and accuracy.
Inflammatory pseudotumor of the lung: clinicopathological analysis in seven adult patients
Because it is difficult to make a preoperative diagnosis of inflammatory pseudotumor by radiological findings or histological findings using specimens obtained by transbronchial lung biopsy, surgical resection is required to differentiate inflammatory pseudOTumors from primary or metastatic lung cancers.
Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma: clinical, histopathologic, and radiologic findings.
The single nodular form has a better prognosis than the others but may show false-negative results for malignancy at 2-(fluorine-18) fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography.
Bronchogenic carcinoma: radiologic-pathologic correlation.
The prognosis for patients with bronchogenic carcinoma is poor, with an overall 5-year survival of 10%-15%.
