    Prospective
    Investigation of Positron Emission Tomography in

    Positron
    Emission Tomography (PSF) is a promising new
    technology. The
    results are excellent with sensitivity of 92% and
    specificity of 90%. The
    other promising new technique for evaluation of SPN
    is by CT chest with contrast enhancement – a 
    sensitivity of 100% and specificity of 77%.
