PURPOSE: Prior studies performed at experienced centers have shown that radial endobronchial ultrasound (radial EBUS) has a diagnostic sensitivity of 73% for malignancy. This study was undertaken to evaluate how the sensitivity of bronchoscopic tissue biopsy of pulmonary nodules changes during the initial period after introduction of radial EBUS.
