The detection of a solitary lung nodule through radiological technique can determine the patients’ prognosis, it can be easily accessed and is visible for surgeons to perform the operation with ease, safety and fewer complications. The authors wish to present two cases of solitary lung nodule successfully managed through wedge resection with the aid of fiducial marker placement. These cases successfully underwent fiducial marker place- ment with dye marking through electromagnetic bronchoscopy prior to the surgical procedure to resect the solitary lung nodule to determine nature of diagnosis. Both cases underwent frozen section procedure which revealed 1 case of adenocarcinoma and 1 case of granuloma.
