Abstract

For PNs ≤10 mm in patients with PEPM on baseline CT, the morphological characteristics and primary malignancies stage could differentiate the majority of the PNs. The interval for further CT evaluation of uncertain PNs should be early at 1-3 months after detection, and increased alert is needed for the possibility of pulmonary metastasis when an early interval change was detected.
