Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The purpose of this study was to compare the frequency of detection of pulmonary nodules on cardiac CT scans acquired with a limited field of view with the frequency of detection at full field of view.

CONCLUSION:

Viewing of cardiac CT scans obtained only at a limited field of view can result in missing more than 67% of nodules larger than 1 cm and more than 80% of nodules smaller than 1 cm.
