part solid lung nodule

A part-solid lung nodule (PSN) or subsolid lung nodule is a morphological descriptor for a type of pulmonary nodule. It usually refers to a ground glass nodule with some solid component.

Their overall malignant potential is considered higher than that of a comparatively size solid pulmonary nodule or a ground glass nodule .

According to some studies, the incidence of malignancy on subsequent follow up partly solid lung nodules was at around 63-93% . Other studies have shown a much greater transient nature (70%) .
