yankelevitz-lung-nodules-sample-figure Here’s the podcast from the recent webinar by Dr. David Yankelevitz, Professor of Radiology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City, on the subject of “Pulmonary Nodules: Evaluation and Management”.  He took us through a wonderful review of many recent developments in CT scans, both in screening programs and informal workup of many other medical settings, as well as how the best radiologists distinguish higher from lower risk nodules.  He also covered the work-up of higher risk nodules with CT-guided biopsies.

One key point: a huge proportion of lung nodules aren’t cancer, and as our CT scanners get more sensitive, we’re going to be finding nodules in just about everyone.  But when they’re that common, it’s not really appropriate to call them abnormal.

Below is the audio and video versions of the podcast, as well as the transcript and figures:

This was another webinar in the terrific expert series that we developed in partnership with LUNGevity Foundation.  Thanks to both Dr. Yankelevitz and LUNGevity for making this great program possible.  I hope it’s helpful.

    After 2 fine needle biopsies and numerous CT scans, i can now see how much information radiologists are getting from the images. But it still seems interpretations of the scans are at times so varying amongst the different radiologists who have reported on my images. Thank you forvthis valuable educational webinar.
