    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%.
