Optical imaging of tissue obtained by transbronchial biopsies of peripheral lung lesions

Posted On 2017-09-15 17:29:14

Bronchoscopic procedures have been increasingly used for the diagnosis of peripheral lung cancers, but the yield remains moderately low. The aim of this study is to assess the feasibility and ability of a custom-built bimodal optical spectroscopy system to enhance the on-site discrimination between malignant and benign specimens obtained from the transbronchial lung biopsies (TBLB) of peripheral lung lesions.
