SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Slide

PURPOSE: To evaluate clinical, radiological and pathological features of multiple radiolucencies and cavitation in lung adenocarcinoma
METHODS: A total of 845 lung adenocarcinomas cases with adequate imaging data were diagnosed in our hospital between August 2010 and August 2013. Among these cases, 29 cases (3.4%) were found having bilateral multiple radiolucencies and cavities (more than 2 leisions) within pulmonary abnormalities based on high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) scans and were enrolled in our study. There were 17 females and 12 males ranging from 32 to 83 years of age. The characteristics of multiple cavities were evaluated, including wall thickness, contours, and presence of air-fluid levels and internal soft-tissue septa. The subtypes of adenocarcinoma, descriptions of necrosis, cavitation or cystic change, mucin production were determined.
