Abstract

Imaging modalities in thoracic oncology continue to evolve. It is important as a community surgeon to be aware of all imaging and diagnostic tools available to diagnose potential thoracic cancer. Our review intends to be a brief overview of the most recent data supporting imaging and diagnostic procedures to help make informed decision to optimize patient care. We will cover computerized tomography, positron emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle biopsy, and electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy.
