Abstract

Introduction

The multidetector computed tomography helps to differentiate between benign and malignant lesions.

Materials and methods

In the present study, 50 patients with the lung masses underwent computed tomography (CT) of chest followed by fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) these patients referred from medical and chest out patient department (OPD) and indoor patient department (IPD).

Results

A total of 36% in males and 10% in female patients belong to 61 to 80 years and 41 to 60 years respectively male to female ratio 2.8:1. The smoking has approximate 36% association with 35% in males and 1% females. In malignant group, 32% were squamous cell carcinoma followed by adenocarcinoma (18%), metastases (16%) poorly differentiated carcinomas (12%) small cell carcinoma (6%) and large cell carcinoma (2%).

Conclusion

The study concludes that combination of CT and CT-guided FNAC give the final diagnosis of the lesion with extension of lesion.
