Comment

SCR lung cancers were not only smaller (2cm or less in diameter: 42.6%) and at a lower stage (pathologic stage I: 70.8%), but also more often adenocarcinoma (85.8%) than SYM lung cancers.

In particular, such findings were more evident with CT in the SCR group (2cm or less in diameter: 76.4%, pathologic stage I: 92.6%, and adenocarcinoma: 92.6%).
