Abstract

Thoracoscopy has been proposed as the procedure of choice for the evaluation of focal, suspected malignant pulmonary lesions in children. One drawback with this approach, however, is the concern that intraparenchymal lesions may go undetected. We prospectively evaluated the ability of an endoscopic ultrasonic probe to detect intraparenchymal nodules. The… (More)
