BACKGROUND The search for the most efficient bronchoscopic imaging tool in detection of early lung cancer is still active. The major aim of this study was to determine sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), and negative predictive value (NPV) of each bronchoscopic technique and their combination in detection of premalignant bronchial lesions. METHODS This was a prospective trial that enrolled 96 patients with indication for bronchoscopy. Lesions were classified as visually… CONTINUE READING
