PURPOSE: Electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy (ENB) is a procedure which combines computed tomography (CT) generated virtual bronchoscopy with electromagnetic tracking to enable passage of a steerable probe beyond the distal airways. Recent studies have established the diagnostic sensitivity of ENB around 60-80%. When compared to trans-thoracic needle aspiration (TTNA), the incidence of pneumothorax is much lower (<5%), thus making ENB an attractive alternative. We performed a retrospective analysis of pre-existing data at our institution on patients undergoing ENB with trans-bronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) between August 2013 and October 2015 and sought to identify patient and nodule characteristics to improve diagnostic accuracy.
