Pulmonary nodules: assessing the repeatability of imaging biomarkers of malignancy

Abstract:
The BTS Pulmonary Nodule Guidelines recommend the use of nodule volumetry as a biomarker of malignancy in pulmonary nodules (PNs). However, studies have shown that there is significant inter-scan variability of such volume measurements, which can vary by up to 25% (Gietema et al 2007). CT Texture analysis (CTTA) has also been shown to be a potential imaging biomarker of malignancy but requires further validation.
