Safe and effective pathological sampling methods are pivotal in the management of lung cancer patients that have previously undergone either curative intent or palliative treatment. Early diagnosis of localised disease recurrence may facilitate further curative treatment and re-biopsy in disease progression after palliative treatment can inform further management. This study assessed the safety and effectiveness of bronchoscopy with radial and linear endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) in patients with suspected lung cancer recurrence or progression following treatment.
