BACKGROUND Autofluorescence bronchoscopy (AFB) was introduced into clinical practice early in the 1990s for identification and localisation of intra-epithelial pre-neoplastic (dysplastic mucosa) and early neoplastic (carcinoma in situ) endobronchial lesions. OBJECTIVES to determine the current range of indications of AFB through review of published literature and to compare sensitivity and specificity of AFB with those of WLB for identification of pre- and early neoplastic lesions in each of… CONTINUE READING
