Lung nodules frequently turn up in patient imaging studies. As technology continuously improves and new data continues to emerge, the recommendations for how and when to follow up on these lung nodules is constantly changing. Clinicians need access to summaries of the latest recommendations to keep abreast of the appropriate diagnostic, staging and follow up protocols for the various risk classes of patients. In addition, emerging technology in the area of robotic medical devices provides new options that were previously unavailable for the management of these patients. Clinicians need information on how and when these devices may be appropriate for their patients.
This activity is focused on sharing the various protocols and devices for managing lung nodules, including diagnostics and
staging. In addition, follow up approaches for high risk patients in particular will be discussed. This will include information
relating to robotic devices.
