"Malignant nodules were found in 14 (51.8%) of the 27 cases, with a predomi-nance of non-small cell lung cancer. The radial-probe EBUS results were posi-tive in 10 (71.4%) of those 14 malignant nodules."

"The differential diagnosis between malignancy and infectious disease is im-portant in Brazil. In the present study, we identified non-neoplastic disease in
13 (48.1%) of the 27 pulmonary nodules that were visible by radial-probe EBUS and in 2 (16.7%) of the 12 pulmonary masses that were visible by radial-probe EBUS, the final diagnoses including fungal infections and tuberculosis."
