    Background: The potential of autofluorescence bronchoscopy (AFB) to detect precancerous lesions in the central airways and its role in lung cancer screening is uncertain. A study was undertaken to evaluate the prevalence of moderate/severe dysplasia (dysplasia Il-Ill) and carcinoma in situ (CIS)...

    Bronchopulmonary cancer worldwide is a matter of public health being alarmingly increasing for the last 50-60 years. Bronchoscopy is an essential method of positive diagnosis both in peripheral bronchopulmonary cancer and in the central one. This investigation allows pre-surgical staging of lung...

    Background: Squamous cell carcinoma of the lung is a common cancer with 95% mortality at 5 years. These cancers arise from preinvasive lesions, which have a natural history of development progressing through increasing severity of dysplasia to carcinoma in situ (CIS), and in some cases, ending...
