The authors describe the radiologic features of precision electrocautery excision of pulmonary lesions (Perelman technique). Thin-walled cavities were seen on chest radiographs obtained in three patients at the site of the resected lesion subsequent to this surgical procedure. Knowledge of these findings can avoid a false diagnosis of abscess, septic emboli, or additional metastasis.
