This consensus paper released by the AATS puts forth 17 recommendations regarding subsolid lung nodules. These consensus statements relate to the radiological and pathological definitions of subsolid nodules, growth rate, recommendations for diagnosis of these nodules, initial and long-term surveillance based on their appearance and type, as well as timing and type of surgical intervention. Several recommendations are also laid forth regarding management of multiple subsolid lung nodules.
