Utility of core biopsy to identify histologic subtype and predict outcome for lung adenocarcinoma

from The Annals of Thoracic Surgery

Lung adenocarcinoma histologic subtype is an important indicator of patient outcomes so pre-operative knowledge of subtype may be helpful to guide surgical planning. Our aim was to evaluate the sensitivity and prognostic efficacy of CT guided core needle biopsies to predict histologic subtype and patient outcome after surgery. CT-guided core biopsies can predict lung adenocarcinoma progression after surgical resection. Future prospective studies should address the role of core biopsy in pre-operative planning. more
