Adverse health effects of work-related contact with respirable hazardous substances are of great public interest. Because related prospective and long-term follow-up studies are rare, the extent of ac...
The current approaches for tissue diagnosis of a solitary pulmonary nodule (SPN) are transthoracic needle aspiration, guided bronchoscopy or surgical resection. The choice of the procedure is driven b...
To study risk factors that affect the evaluation of malignancy in patients with solitary pulmonary nodules (SPN) and verify different predictive models for malignant probability of SPN.
The number of solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs) detected each year is expected to increase dramatically with the implementation of lung cancer screening. Although some will have radiographic features...
Solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs) are commonly encountered in pulmonary practice. Their management is complex, and multiple clinical factors must be considered. The three common management strategies...
Patients presenting with solitary or multiple lung nodules often require tissue confirmation in order to guide further management and determine if the lesion is benign or malignant. Severa...
All patients with a new, untreated solitary pulmonary nodule (SPN) between 7 mm and 3 cm in diameter identified by chest x-ray, will be approached to undergo positron emission tomography (...
To perform a multiple reader, multiple case (MRMC) observer study assessing the detection performance of VolumeRAD tomosynthesis of the chest in detecting lung nodules.
The purpose of this study is to apply the techniques of dynamic MRI imaging enhancement to research participants with one or more pulmonary nodule to determine if meaningful information ab...
Because the management of children with solid tumors hinges on the extent of disease, it is crucial to identify metastatic sites. Helical chest computed tomography (CT) is the standard met...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A single lung lesion that is characterized by a small round mass of tissue, usually less than 1 cm in diameter, and can be detected by chest radiography. A solitary pulmonary nodule can be associated with neoplasm, tuberculosis, cyst, or other anomalies in the lung, the CHEST WALL, or the PLEURA.
A form of pneumoconiosis resulting from inhalation of iron in the mining dust or welding fumes.
A benign, non-neoplastic, usually self-limiting epithelial lesion closely resembling squamous cell carcinoma clinically and histopathologically. It occurs in solitary, multiple, and eruptive forms. The solitary and multiple forms occur on sunlight exposed areas and are identical histologically; they affect primarily white males. The eruptive form usually involves both sexes and appears as a generalized papular eruption.
A small round or oval, mostly subcutaneous nodule made up chiefly of a mass of Aschoff bodies and seen in cases of rheumatic fever. It is differentiated from the RHEUMATOID NODULE which appears in rheumatoid arthritis, most frequently over bony prominences. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
Gray matter located in the dorsomedial part of the MEDULLA OBLONGATA associated with the solitary tract. The solitary nucleus receives inputs from most organ systems including the terminations of the facial, glossopharyngeal, and vagus nerves. It is a major coordinator of AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM regulation of cardiovascular, respiratory, gustatory, gastrointestinal, and chemoreceptive aspects of HOMEOSTASIS. The solitary nucleus is also notable for the large number of NEUROTRANSMITTERS which are found therein.
