Brief Summary:
This is a phase II protocol to determine the safety and feasibility of Intraoperative CT fluoroscopy guidance for lung resection for small nodules.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lung Cancer Procedure: Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) wedge resection Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a phase II protocol to determine the safety and feasibility of image guided CT marking for resection of small lung nodules. This is relevant because many such nodules are hard to localize for minimally invasive lung resection. It is hoped that this technology using fluoro CT capability available now in most operating room will improve safety and reliability of thoracic surgery.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CT Marking and VATS lung wedge resection
Each patient with a lung nodule meeting criteria will undergo marking with fiducials followed at the same time by Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) lung wedge resection under CT fluoroscopy.
Procedure: Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) wedge resection
Other Name: Nodules marked with fiducials such as Kopan needles under CT fluoroscopy followed by VATS wedge resection.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    The patient will be monitored while in the hospital by their thoracic surgical team as well as by two research nurses named Lauren Donahue, RN and Karen Magsipoc, NP. The research nurses will document any perioperative complications and mortality that arise during the patient's stay in the hospital.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Efficacy [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    Accurate and appropriate resection in a given timeline
