BTS Guidelines for the investigation and management of pulmonary nodules

Risk Calculators

Three risk prediction calculators have been developed to assist clinicians in the diagnosis and management of pulmonary nodules – using either CT, PET-CT or volume doubling time information. These calculators should be used in conjunction with the BTS Guideline for Pulmonary Nodules available below.  The Risk Calculator is available here.

iOS and Android App 

Cancer Research UK and BTS in partnership have produced an app which includes the risk calculators and summary information from the guideline.  Amongst other improvements, as suggested by users, the updated version now displays only the patient management recommendations that are relevant to the calculator results.

The Pulmonary Nodule Risk App is free to download:

iPhone/iPad
