The original version of this article, published on 03 December 2018, unfortunately contained a mistake. The following correction has therefore been made in the original: The presentation of Table 3 was incorrect. The corrected table is given below. The original article has been corrected.
Table 3

Recommendations for each protocol by NCN subtype and size on the baseline LDCT for (a) immediate workup, (b) 3-month follow-up LDCT, and (c) 6-month follow-up LDCT

a. Immediate workup PET, biopsy, follow-up CT

  Solid NCN, largest

b. 3-month LDCT

  Part-solid NCN, largest

Solid component of NCN ≥ 6.0 mm but < 15.0 mm

Entire size of NCN ≥ 6 mm with solid component ≥ 6 mm but < 8 mm

Entire size of NCN ≥ 6 mm with solid component ≥ 6 mm but < 8 mm

Entire size of NCN ≥ 5 mm

c. 6-month LDCT

The recommendations for part-solid NCN are based on either the size of the entire NCN or on the size of solid component as specified by each protocol

aThe I-ELCAP protocol and ACR-LungRADS do not recommend 3-month follow-up for nonsolid NCNs

bThe I-ELCAP protocol does not recommend 6-month follow-up for nonsolid NCNs, only annual repeat follow-up
