Bronchial Ultrasonography Via a Fibrescope: Pilot Study in Tumoral Disease

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00241267
Recruitment Status : Terminated

Brief Summary:

The exploration of neoplastic pulmonary pathology is based on computed tomography and bronchoscopy. This allows targeted samples of the identified lesions.

A new ultrasonographic method is proposed as a non invasive and non irradiating technic by using a dedicated probe easily introduced via the channel of the fibrescope, so as to complete the identification of peripheral lesions.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Pulmonary Neoplasms Device: Dedicated ultrasonographic probe during bronchoscopy

Detailed Description:

The main objective of the study is to assess the ability of endobronchial ultrasonography to diagnose peripheral pulmonary lesions during the bronchoscopy and to correlate the abnormalities to computed tomography and/or histology.

The dedicated probe consist of a linear array of 2-3 mm in diameter connected to a commercial unit.
