Extract

Editor’s Note: Although Dr Silvestri both coauthored and in this editorial comments on a meta-analysis that appears in this issue, we invited him to share his perspective on the diagnostic approach to the solitary pulmonary nodule. Dr Silvestri did not contribute original research to the articles covered in the meta-analysis, and he disclosed this relationship to the meta-analysis. For these reasons, we are pleased to share with you his interventional bronchoscopy expertise in this editorial context.
