Nodule Management

We help solve complex diagnostic challenges in lung nodule management and diagnosis.

Leading pulmonologists continue to advance nodule management programs to screen and evaluate patients. However, with 95% of nodules found incidentally, many challenges remain.

Managing Incidental Lung Nodules is a Challenge

More than 1.6 million nodules are detected incidentally each year in the US, but only 1 in 3 patients ever receive a clinical follow-up. In addition, it takes on average 8 months for a nodule to be diagnosed as either malignant or benign.1,2


95-2-3-8months

 

Clinical risk assessment has become a critical component of managing patients with newly discovered lung nodules. Physicians must weigh the benefit of avoiding invasive procedures and the risk of delayed intervention.
