The British Thoracic Society developed guidelines for evaluation and management of solitary pulmonary nodules based on a literature review and expert opinion.  New features include the use of a malignancy risk algorithm, use of a higher threshold for follow-up (5mm), and a reduction in the follow-up interval to 1 year for solid nodules.  Management of part solid nodules is assigned a separate algorithm.
