ABSTRACT
The article presents a study to test the impact of image quality, Gunnar eyewear and nodule location on detectability of lung nodules in chest computed tomography (CT). It compares the individual influence of image quality, Gunnar eyewear and nodule location. It suggests that the sensitivity for lung nodules increased significantly using Gunnar eyewear, while lower image quality had no impact on nodule sensitivity.
