      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      1.-The computed tomography of the chest is a very valuable tool for the primary care provider. The clinician who knows the details of the patient's clinical presentation is most likely to arrive to the diagnosis after personally reviewing the radiologic images.

      2.-Understanding the anatomic terms used by the radiologist in their report will impact the clinicians interpretation of the radiologic findings.

      3.-Identification of lung nodules being able to calculate the probability of malignancy will be very useful in the era of lung cancer screening.

      4.-The evaluation of the airway, pleura and lymph nodes on the CT scan is very important for deciding on the diagnostic and therapeutic strategies needed for the individual patient.
