Radiologicâ??Pathologic correlation of tumors in lung cancer

The radiologic-pathologic correlation of tumors in lung cancer is a critical component of the diagnostic and treatment process for this disease. In this process, radiologic imaging techniques such as Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) are used to identify suspicious lesions or masses in the lungs. Once a suspicious lesion is identified, a biopsy is taken to confirm the diagnosis of lung cancer and determine the specific type of cancer. The biopsy can be performed using various methods, such as a needle biopsy, bronchoscopy, or surgery. The pathology report from the biopsy is then compared with the radiologic imaging findings to correlate the radiologic features of the lesion with the histologic characteristics of the tumor.
