The September 2015 issue of JTI has been published on-line and in print.
Venkatesh Murugan and colleagues have published their review article, “Lung Cancer Screening: Computed Tomography Radiation and Protocols”, which provides some guidance for adjusting chest CT protocols to meet specifications for lung cancer screening.
Many new original articles have also been published:
- “Semiautomatic Analysis on Computed Tomography in Locally Advanced or Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: Reproducibility and Prognostic Significance of Unidimensional and 3-dimensional Measurements” by Davide Colombi and colleagues
- “Imaging Tumor Response and Tumoral Heterogeneity in Non–Small Cell Lung Cancer Treated With Antiangiogenic Therapy: Comparison of the Prognostic Ability of RECIST 1.1, an Alternate Method (Crabb), and Image Heterogeneity Analysis” by Connie Yip and colleagues
- “The Pseudocavitation Sign of Lung Adenocarcinoma: A Distinguishing Feature and Imaging Biomarker of Lepidic Growth” by Tina Tailor and colleagues
- “Core Lung Biopsy for Biomarker Analysis: Is There Increased Risk Compared With Conventional Biopsy?” By Sujay Sheth and colleagues
- “Diagnostic Yield and Safety of Computed Tomography–guided Mediastinal Core Needle Biopsies” by Constance de Margerie-Mellon and colleagues
- “Comparison of Digital Tomosynthesis and Chest Radiography for the Detection of Noncalcified Pulmonary and Hilar Lesions” by Angela Galea and colleagues
