Launch of Pulmonary Nodule Patient Information Leaflet

This ITS supported patient Information leaflet was developed by respiratory specialist from the nationally designated respiratory centres of excellence to help address some of the patients concerns and understanding regarding the incidental detection and importance of radiological follow up of subcentimeter pulmonary nodules detected on CT imaging. The actual predicted risk of cancer and timing of radiological follow up for every nodule should be evaluated by a specialist in this area, but this leaflet can aid the information given to such patients.

Credit goes to Dr Jessica McCarthy under the supervision of Dr Oisin O’Connell in the development of this leaflet and queries and concerns for future versions of this leaflet can be sent to Dr Oisin O’Connell.
