Padungkiat Tangpiroontham

Abstract


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.
