Conventional Bronchoscopy Plus Rose Versus Electromagnetic Navigation (EMN) Plus Rose in Small Peripheral Lesions

04:04 EDT 18th April 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aim of this study is to evaluate if Electromagnetic navigation (ENB) in combination with rapid on site evaluation (ROSE) can improve diagnostic accuracy in those patients who fail to be diagnosed with conventional fluoroscopic assisted bronchoscopy (FBS) in combination with ROSE.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.

Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.

Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.

A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
