Use of computed tomography in the detection of pulmonary nodules.

Abstract

The ability of computed tomography of the lungs to detect pulmonary nodules was compared with that of conventional chest roentgenography and whole-lung tomography. Computed tomography detected more pulmonary nodules in 10 of 29 patients studied with both computed tomography and whole-lung tomography. Computed tomography of the lungs is the most accurate noninvasive method available for detecting pulmonary nodules.
