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

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).
RATIONALE: Doctors can diagnose lung cancer by collecting mucus coughed up from the lungs and examining it under a microscope to look for cancer cells. Breathing in INS316 may make it easi...
Lung cancer is the commonest malignant disease with a 5-year survival of 14%. In Hong Kong, it accounts for about 30% of all cancer death. The poor prognosis of lung cancer is due largely...
Potential participants in the Lung Cancer Case Registry will be all patients diagnosed or evaluated for possible treatment of lung cancer at the Cancer Research and Treatment Center (CRTC)...
Early detection of lung cancer may improve treatment outcomes. Risk factors have been identified, suggesting a population which might benefit from regular screening. Lung cancer screening...
RATIONALE: Using new methods to examine sputum samples for the presence of cancer cells may detect lung cancer earlier. PURPOSE: Screening trial to study the effectiveness of new methods...
Lung cancer is still a leading cause of cancer mortality in the world. The incidence of lung cancer in developed countries started to decrease mainly due to global anti-smoking campaigns. However, the...
In the last 20 years, there has been an increased focus on gender differences in health and disease. The earliest studies of lung cancer enrolled mainly men, as the incidence of lung cancer among wome...
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in U.S. and represents a major public health burden. Epidemiologic data have suggested that lung cancer in women may possess different biological chara...
Owing to the high mortality and rapidly growing costs related to lung cancer, it is worth examining the health benefits of prevention for major types of lung cancer. This study attempts to quantify th...
Lung cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer in Germany. 90% of cases are due to the inhalation of tobacco smoke. About 40% of patients with newly diagnosed lung cancer are still smokers. A s...
