Our purpose was to evaluate whether pseudocavitation, characterized by round or oval areas of low attenuation in a lesion on computed tomography (CT), can help distinguish adenocarcinoma from other types of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We also sought to determine whether pseudocavitation is associated with lepidic growth on histopathology.
