Nodule reconstruction images

High Definition Computed Tomography (HDCT) reveals complex pediatric lung nodule morphology. HDCT reconstructions provide high definition images (0.1 mm isotropic voxels) from the clinical sinogram data, meaning that increased spatial resolution is achieved without additional radiation exposure. The ability to visualize and quantify these complex nodule morphologies may lead to improved diagnoses and minimize the need for surgical biopsy.
