To investigate the performance of combined 18F-FDG Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography with high-resolution CT for differentiating invasive adenocarcinoma from adenocarcinoma in situ (pre-invasive lesion) or minimally invasive adenocarcinoma in stage IA lung cancer patients with solitary ground-glass opacity nodules. This retrospective study enrolled 58 consecutive stage IA pulmonary adenocarcinoma patients with solitary ground-glass opacity nodules. The characteristics and measurements of the ground-glass opacity nodules as pure ground-glass opacity nodules and mixed ground-glass opacity nodules in the pre-invasive or minimally invasive adenocarcinoma and invasive adenocarcinoma groups on Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography and high-resolution CT were compared and analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Solitary pulmonary nodules (SPN) are frequently detected in cancer patients. These lesions are often considered as pulmonary metastases and increasingly treated by non-surgical techniques without histological confirmation. The aim of this study is to determine the histological nature of SPN resected by thoracoscopy and to identify risk factors of malignancy. METHODS: Single-institution retrospective analysis of all consecutive patients with previously known malignancies who underwent thoracoscopic resection of SPN with unknown diagnosis between 2001 and 2014...

There are no large samples or exact prediction models for assessing the cancer risk factors of solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs) in the Chinese population. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical and imaging data of patients with SPNs who underwent computer tomography guided needle biopsy in our hospital from Jan 1st of 2011 to March 30th of 2016. These patients were divided into a development data set and a validation data set. These groups included 1078 and 344 patients, respectively. A prediction model was developed from the development data set and was validated with the validation data set using logistic regression...

A 51-year-old man was diagnosed with colon cancer in September 2011, and a solitary pulmonary nodule was detected by computed tomography (CT) scan. We performed a transbronchial biopsy with endobronchial ultrasonography using a guide sheath (GS) and diagnosed lung metastasis of colon cancer. The patient experienced remittent fever after the biopsy in spite of intravenous antibiotic therapies. Moreover, his CT scan showed a large lung abscess at the biopsy site. We performed transbronchial drainage using a GS as salvage therapy...

With improved awareness of public health and the recent advances in various imaging technologies, the detection rate of solitary pulmonary nodules (SPN) is continuously increasing. Transthoracic needle aspiration (TTNA) has represented a major approach for the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of pulmonary masses, owing to its simplicity and minimal invasiveness. This paper demonstrates the role of TTNA in SPN.

A 69-year-old male smoker was referred to (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT) with the indication of a suspicious solitary pulmonary nodule. FDG PET/CT determined a 2.5 × 2-cm soft-tissue lesion (SUVmax, 16.2) with spiculated margins in the hilum of the right lung. A 1-cm diameter lymphadenopathy on the right hilum with an SUVmax of 3.2 was also determined. Transbronchial biopsy of the right hilar lymphadenopathy did not reveal any malignant features in histopathologic examination, and it was determined to be reactive...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary granulomas are sometimes resected because they resemble lung cancer and false-positive findings come through from positron emission tomography (PET) using 18fluorine-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG). Mycobacterial infection is a common cause of granulomas. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the radiopathological features and the methods for identifying mycobacterial infections in granulomatous nodules resected from the lung. METHODS: Thirty-five solitary lesions resected because of suspected lung cancer were enrolled, including 22 nonfungal granulomatous lesions and 13 benign lesions as controls...

A 63-year-old man with a history of prostate cancer, treated with resection, radiation, and androgen-depriving therapy over 4 years, was referred to our department with suspicion of recurrence based on increased blood PSA levels (1.60 ng/mL). Ga PSMA PET/CT identified a solitary, PSMA-positive pulmonary nodule in the right lung. After resection, histologic analysis confirmed prostatic origin, and the blood PSA level decreased to 0.13 ng/mL. Solitary pulmonary metastasis from prostate cancer is rare. The benefits of local treatment of a single metastasis even in advanced disease are disputed among oncologists...

Primary intrapulmonary thymoma (PIT) is a very rare lesion of uncertain pathogenesis. PIT should be considered when the histopathological appearance of a lung tumor shows features that are uncommon but similar to those of a thymoma. In this case report, we discuss the case of a 59-year-old female with a solitary pulmonary nodule that was confirmed to be PIT on the basis of pathological tests. Treatment with complete resection showed good results.

(18)F-fluorodeoxryglucose ((18)F-FDG) PET/CT imaging is routinely performed in the evaluation of patients with known or suspected thoracic malignancy. Indications for its use include staging of malignancy, assessment of response to therapy, evaluation of suspected disease recurrence, and evaluation of a solitary pulmonary nodule. In this article, we will discuss specific technical artifacts and also review potential pitfalls in the interpretation of PET/CT in thoracic malignancies including normal variations in physiologic uptake of FDG, benign conditions (such as infection, inflammation, posttreatment changes, and iatrogenic factors) that can result in increased FDG uptake, and malignancies that demonstrate scarce to no FDG uptake...

We report a case of minimal thyroid carcinoma diagnosed by a solitary pulmonary metastasis. A 70's man visited a medical practitioner because of chest discomfort, and there was an abnormality on the chest X-ray. Chest computed tomography(CT) showed a nodule in the right middle lobe of the lung. Positron emission tomography with 18-fluorodeoxyglucose(FDG)-PET revealed increased FDG uptake in that tumor, but did not reveal any other lesion. The tumor was clinically suspected to be a carcinoid tumor, primary lung cancer, metastatic lung cancer, or a benign tumor...

Surgical treatment for lung cancer including airway resection following reconstruction is typically performed under general anesthesia with single-lung ventilation because it is necessary to maintain a sufficient working space and to adjust the airway pressure for the leak test. However, non-intubated thoracic surgery has been gradually developed in recent years for thoracoscopic surgery, due to its lower rate of postoperative complications, shorter hospitalization duration, and lower invasiveness than the usual single-lung anesthesia...
