Abstract

The regular use of high-resolution computed tomogram scans has led to an increase in the detection of asymptomatic ground-glass opacities and sub-solid nodules at an early stage. Different growth patterns of these lesions are making decision-making a real challenge. With growing experience and improving radiology interventions, management of these lesions is changing constantly. However, with variations in growth patterns and outcomes, immediate treatment options as well as follow-up surveillance and subsequent interventions can be confounding for the clinicians. This mini review describes algorithms for managing these ground-glass opacities (GGOs) and sub-solid nodules (SSNs) with a focus on the surgical options.
