This preliminary study aimed to assess the potential value of diaphragmatic ultrasound (DUS) in evaluating phrenic nerve involvement indirectly, in the non-invasive pre-operative staging of mediastinal invasion in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A prospective study of 30 patients with NSCLC comparing the findings of diaphragmatic ultrasound, chest radiograph, computed tomography (CT) thorax and mediastinoscopy was performed. In all cases adequate quantitiative assessment of… CONTINUE READING
