Incidental Lung Nodule Management Using Fleischner Society Guidelines

December 04, 2019
NHRMC continues to lead our community to outstanding health with the implementation of a program to manage incidental lung nodule findings. Incidental findings are discovered unintentionally during imaging exams. Radiologists will follow the Fleischner Society Guidelines for management of solid nodules, and recommendations will be included in the report.
A Program Navigator will work/communicate directly with referring providers and patients to ensure incidental findings are acknowledged and receive proper follow-up care.
The incidental lung nodule program will complement the existing Lung Cancer Screening and multidisciplinary Lung program designed for newly diagnosed lung cancer patients.
