Low-risk bronchoscopy techniques for retrieving biopsy samples for the diagnosis of lung cancer are hampered by low diagnostic yields, and trans-thoracic and surgical approaches carry higher intrinsic risk of complications. We are investigating the use of optical coherence tomography to increase the diagnostic yield of bronchial biopsy.
