Error margin of less than 2.5 mm
According to the standards set by the Japan Society of CT Screening, "Assessment criteria for pulmonary nodules in lung-cancer screening using low-dose CT and approaches to time-series observations, 3rd edition," (February 2012 revision), the minimum nodule size that is a subject for detailed screening is a diameter of 5 mm; half of that, or 2.5 mm, is therefore the maximum allowable error margin.
