Pulmonary nodules can have any number of causes, and may mean many different things for patients. What they all have in common, is that they are suspicious areas in the lung and chest region that need to be examined more closely by thoracic experts.
The Pulmonary Nodule Clinic at Dartmouth Cancer Center offers just that–a team of medical oncologists, thoracic surgeons, radiologists, pathologists and other experts, who join their expertise together to provide the best care possible to patients.
“Being able to offer our community, and care providers in our community, a resource where providers across multiple specialties will help manage their patient with a pulmonary nodule in the most comprehensive and multi-disciplinary fashion possible, is best for the patient and ensures that we’re providing the best care possible,” says interventional pulmonologist and surgeon Elliot D. Backer, MD.
