ELECTROMAGNETIC NAVIGATION BRONCHOSCOPY WITH TWO POINTS DYE MARKING FOR SURGICAL BIOPSY IN SMALL PERIPHERAL INTERSEGMENTAL PULMONARY NODULE: A CASE REPORT

SEPTEMBER 2018 - VOL.14 | CASE REPORT

In lung cancer screening programs, small peripheral pulmonary nodules are detected more frequently. We reported a case in which electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy (ENB) with biopsy failed to give a diagnosis of intersegmental pulmonary nodule so ENB with dye marking combined with minimally invasive surgical biopsy was used for the diagnosis for the first time in Thailand.

Keywords:

ENB, navigation bronchoscopy, pulmonary nodule localization, tattoo, dye marking, intersegmental pulmonary nodule
