Incidental Pulmonary Nodules
Identify. Track. Impact.
More than 1.5 million incidental pulmonary nodules are detected every year. Yet less than 30% will receive follow-up care according to recommended guidelines. This creates a missed opportunity to diagnose early-stage lung cancer and puts a tremendous burden on the healthcare system.
But not anymore. Eon offers the only solution to positively identify and track incidental pulmonary nodules with 98.3% accuracy. Using best-in-class data science models, Eon captures patients at risk for catastrophic disease early—when it matters most—and ensures adherence so no patient falls through the cracks.

The Eon Advantage
Incidental Identification Solution
Eon is the only incidental pulmonary nodule identification solution that delivers an overall accuracy of 98.3% with 98.1% precision and 99.8% recall.
By using Computational Linguistics, a data science discipline that is superior to basic Natural Language Processing (NLP), Eon’s model positively identifies and extracts single or multiple nodules, max size, laterality, lobe, shape/border characteristics, and growth. While other vendors think 70% accuracy is acceptable, Eon thinks it's crazy. The Eon approach saves FTE time by cutting out noise and allowing them to focus on patients who might actually have lung cancer.
Eon’s comprehensive incidental pulmonary nodule software is the ONLY solution that:
- Does not disrupt radiology workflow or require change in radiologist read
- Extracts nodule size, lobe, laterality, and other pertinent characteristics
- Automates patient tracking per Fleischner Society guidelines in one dashboard
- Listens for pertinent follow-up exams, including unscheduled and emergency
- Automates FTE workflow with proprietary follow-up logic
- Sends a weekly adherence report to understand leakage and patient capture
- Uses proprietary logic to automate patient and provider communication

EPM for Incidental Pulmonary Nodules
Features and Attributes
Computational Linguistics is the most advanced form of data science to understand text and the linguistic structure of English. Unlike NLP, it doesn’t require brute-force and text-scraping techniques to identify keywords, nor does it require FTEs to sort through actionable positives vs. false positives. Eon’s Computational Linguistics automatically reduces false positives and does not require radiologists to be rigid or use a structured report.
- Achieve high-precision output with high positive predictive value and limit the number of false positives
- Extract single or multiple nodules, max size, laterality, lobe, shape/border characteristics, and growth from radiology reports
- Segment patients by risk and automate follow-up requirements
- Identify at-risk patients earlier and intervene when treatment is most effective
More Information at Your Fingertips
Eon’s data science engines automatically extract more essential nodule information from radiology reports, resulting in instant access to:
- Number of Nodules
Eon’s Data Science Model in Action
Put game-changing incidental pulmonary nodule tracking software to work and always be adherent to guideline-recommended follow-up, like Fleischner Society Guidelines.
- Automate reminders for exams and procedures so your FTEs instantly know what’s been scheduled and what still needs to be scheduled
- Prioritize the 20% of IPN patients who are high-risk and need immediate care coordination, while automating follow-up for the 80% of low-risk patients
- Adhere to the latest Fleischner Society Guidelines
- Use Eon’s proprietary “Follow-Up Listener” to auto-track patients and knows who has had their exam/procedure and who is at risk for no follow-up
- Register high-risk patients to a mobile nodule board so on-the-go care providers can communicate and make critical patient decisions at any time
- Receive a weekly adherence report to understand leakage and patient capture
- Track patient treatment and improve patient outcomes in one intuitive and easy-to-use dashboard
- Reduce the chance of future liability with an automated, guideline-based solution
Next Level Models & Logic
Eon’s advanced Computational Linguistics models make it possible to positively identify IPNs earlier—when treatment is most effective. By extracting and parsing nodule characteristics with proprietary built-in logic automation, EPM arms providers with guideline-based intelligence to make the right decisions at the most critical times. And, EPM automates next steps for patients who don’t need immediate diagnostic workup.
