Abstract
Screening for lung cancer with low-dose computed tomography (CT) has led to increased recognition of small lung cancers and is expected to increase the rate of detection of early-stage lung cancer. Major concerns in the implementation of the CT screening of large populations include determining the appropriate management of pulmonary nodules found on a scan. The identification of patients with early-stage lung cancer who have a higher risk for relapse and who require more aggressive surveillance has been a target of intense investigation. This study was performed to investigate whether image features of internal intensity in combination with surrounding structure characteristics are associated with an increased risk of relapse in patients with stage IA lung adenocarcinoma. We focused on pleural attachment status which is one of morphological characteristics associated with prognosis in three-dimensional thoracic CT images.
