  • Grey scale texture analysis of endobronchial ultrasound mini probe images for prediction of benign or malignant aetiology. Respirology 2015;20:960-6. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26113224 Abstract: Expert analysis of endobronchial ultrasound mini probe (EBUS-MP) images has established subjective criteria for discriminating benign and malignant disease. Minimal data are available for objective analysis of these images. The aim of this study was to determine if greyscale texture analysis could differentiate between benign and malignant lung lesions.
  • Comparison of objective criteria and expert visual interpretation to classify benign and malignant hilar and mediastinal nodes on 18-F FDG PET/CT. Respirology 2015;20:129-37. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25263085 Abstract: There is widespread adoption of FDG-PET/CT in staging of lung cancer, but no universally accepted criteria for classifying thoracic nodes as malignant. Previous studies show high negative predictive values, but reporting criteria and positive predictive values varies. Using Endobronchial ultrasound transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) results as gold standard, we evaluated objective FDG-PET/CT criteria for interpreting mediastinal and hilar nodes and compared this to expert visual interpretation (EVI).
