PURPOSE: Suspicious pulmonary nodules are common findings since CT scans have become a screening method for lung cancer. The challenge is to find a safer, practical and more accurate way to diagnose peripheral nodules and lesions while minimizing harm to the patient. Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy (ENB) is a cutting edge technology that enables pulmonologists to precisely target small and difficult to reach peripheral pulmonary nodules by using technology similar to a global positioning system (GPS).This study describes our experience in using ENB with Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) as a diagnostic tool on patients suspected of lung malignancy.
