Pneumothorax is reported to be a more common complication of lung biopsy performed under computed tomography (CT) than under fluoroscopic guidance. This may simply reflect the greater sensitivity of CT over chest radiographs (CXRs) in the detection of small pneumothoraces. This study aimed to determine the incidence of pneumothorax detected by CXR and by CT after CT-guided biopsy of non-pleurally based pulmonary masses, and to compare these incidences with previous reports in the literature of… CONTINUE READING
