Peripheral pulmonary lesions (PPL) are difficult to diagnose. We analyzed the diagnostic values and risks of endobronchial ultrasonography with a guide sheath (EBUS-GS) and computed tomography guided transthoracic needle aspiration (CT-TTNA) in diagnosing PPL.

When evaluating peripheral pulmonary lesions, a 3.0-mm ultrathin bronchoscope (UTB) with a 1.7-mm working channel is advantageous with regard to good access to the peripheral airway, whereas a 4.0-mm ...
In adults, linear endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) is the preferred modality to sample intrathoracic adenopathy and radial EBUS is a useful tool to biopsy peripheral pulmonary nodules. Utility in child...
Most of the endobronchial lesions are malignant in origin. In rare instances, benign lesions occupying the endobronchial tree can mimic malignant neoplasms on conventional imaging tests. We present a ...
To investigate the ultrasonographic characteristics in hourglass-like constriction of peripheral nerve in the upper extremity, and to evaluate the value of ultrasonography in the diagnosis.
Traumatic peripheral nerve lesions affect patients of all age groups. They are associated with functional deficits that have severe consequences for affected patients and prolonged or permanent inabil...
This is a randomized controlled trail aiming at comparing the diagnostic value and safety of endobronchial ultrasonography with a guide sheath(EBUS-GS) and computed tomography-guided trans...
The purpose of this study is to examine the usefulness of a balloon covered sheath as a guide sheath in endobronchial ultrasound guided transbronchial biopsy and bronchial brushing cytolog...
Endobronchial Ultrasound Guided Transbronchial Lung Biopsy With or Without Guide Sheath in Lung Tumors and the Analysis of Echoic Patterns of Lung Tumors and Mediastinal Lymph Nodes, and the Association Between Diagnostic Yield of Transbronchial Lung Biop
1. Endobronchial ultrasonography (EBUS) is useful in localizing peripheral lung lesions. The EBUS, further combined with the guide sheath (GS) technique, has been reported to inc...
Despite technological advancements directed towards the diagnosis of peripheral pulmonary lesions, an optimal approach has yet to be designed. One significant barrier for the bronchoscopic...
The study is aimed to evaluate the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value and accuracy rate of endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) image features in dia...
A condition of lung damage that is characterized by bilateral pulmonary infiltrates (PULMONARY EDEMA) rich in NEUTROPHILS, and in the absence of clinical HEART FAILURE. This can represent a spectrum of pulmonary lesions, endothelial and epithelial, due to numerous factors (physical, chemical, or biological).
Enlargement of air spaces distal to the TERMINAL BRONCHIOLES where gas-exchange normally takes place. This is usually due to destruction of the alveolar wall. Pulmonary emphysema can be classified by the location and distribution of the lesions.
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect, with the superposition of flow information as colors on a gray scale in a real-time image. This type of ultrasonography is well-suited to identifying the location of high-velocity flow (such as in a stenosis) or of mapping the extent of flow in a certain region.
Use of ultrasound for imaging the breast. The most frequent application is the diagnosis of neoplasms of the female breast.
A number of small lung lesions characterized by small round masses of 2- to 3-mm in diameter. They are usually detected by chest CT scans (COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY). Such nodules can be associated with metastases of malignancies inside or outside the lung, benign granulomas, or other lesions.
