Lung Nodule Evaluation Clinic
The Lung Nodule Evaluation Clinic at CPMC provides patients with comprehensive, multidisciplinary, and expedited evaluation of lung nodules. Lung cancer is often first discovered as a lung nodule on a chest x-ray or CT scan. However, not all lung nodules are due to lung cancer.
Cases are reviewed every week with a team of Pulmonary, Thoracic surgery, Oncology, Radiology and Nuclear Medicine physicians to determine the most direct, least invasive approach to diagnosing and treating lung nodules.
Using a variety of diagnostic studies and procedures including CT/PET, bronchoscopy with ultrasound guided biopsies (EBUS-TBNA), CT guided biopsy, mediastinoscopy and video-assisted thorascopic surgery (VATS), we are able to quickly and fully evaluate lung nodules and stage lung cancer.
