A pulmonary nodule is a single, nearly spherical, well-circumscribed pulmonary opacity up to 30 mm in diameter and surrounded by aerated lung tissue. In radiographs, pulmonary nodules may appear as solid, completely obscuring the lung parenchyma, or as subsolid, not completely obscuring adjacent tissues. A subsolid pulmonary nodule may be further subclassified as a pure ground glass nodule (pGGN) or a part solid nodule, a mixture of ground glass components and focal opacity obscuring the adjacent tissues. Guidelines for evaluation of solid pulmonary nodules are based on nodule size, recommending vigilance and non-operative management for small nodules (less than 8 mm in diameter) and diagnostic biopsy for nodules with a diameter of 8 mm or more...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Given the higher rate of malignancy of subsolid pulmonary nodules and the considerably lower growth rate of ground-glass nodules (GGNs), dedicated standardized guidelines for management of these nodules have been proposed, including long-term low-dose computed tomography (CT) follow-up (≥3 years). Physicians must be familiar with the strategic management of subsolid pulmonary nodules, and should be able to identify imaging features that suggest invasive adenocarcinoma requiring a more aggressive management...

A new classification of lung adenocarcinoma has been proposed recently-the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer/American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society classification. Abundant information from recent lung cancer computed tomography (CT) screening programs has increased our understanding of the strong, although imperfect, correlation between histologic findings of lung adenocarcinoma and subsolid pulmonary nodules on CT, including both "pure" ground-glass nodules (GGNs) and "part-solid" GGNs...
