Endoscopic ultrasound‐guided fine‐needle aspiration when combined with positron emission tomography improves specificity and overall diagnostic accuracy in unexplained mediastinal lymphadenopathy and staging of non‐small‐cell lung cancer
Abstract:Background: The aim of this study was to assess the incremental value of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)‐guided fine‐needle aspiration (FNA) to positron emission tomography (PET) in the diagnosis of unexplained mediastinal lymphadenopathy and staging of non‐small‐cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
