Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the percentages of diagnosis that can be obtained adding ENB to conventional bronchoscopy in the same patient [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: May 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
36-40 patients
patients with small peripheral lesions who need bronchoscopy for diagnostic purposes


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients with peripheral lesion suitable for surgery who need preoperative diagnosis will be studied, at first, with conventional bronchoscopy under fluoroscopic guidance. In case of non diagnostic procedure they will be candidates for ENB. All the patients will be candidates to surgical procedure in case of malignant lesions.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • presence of small peripheral lung lesions (< 3 cm) in patient suitable for surgical procedure

Exclusion Criteria:

  • patient with metastatic disease
  • patients unfit for surgical procedure
