The purpose of this retrospective diagnostic study was to develop and validate a preoperative CT-based nomogram combined with radiomic and clinical-radiological signatures to distinguish preinvasive lesions from pulmonary invasive lesions. The authors were able to demonstrate that a nomogram constructed by identified clinical-radiological signatures and combined radiomic signatures has the potential to precisely predict pathology invasiveness.
- The radiomic signature from the perinodular area has the potential to predict pathology invasiveness of the solitary pulmonary nodule.
- The new radiomic nomogram was useful in clinical decision-making associated with personalized surgical intervention and therapeutic regimen selection in patients with early-stage non-small-cell lung cancer.
