CT identified 92 suspicious (‘positive’) mediastinal nodes and PET identified 89 [2]. EBUS-FNA diagnosed mediastinal nodal metastases in only 37 nodes. The sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of EBUS-FNA was 92%, 100% and 98%, compared to 76%, 55% and 61% for CT, and 80%, 70% and 73% for PET. The false negative rate was 8%.

A study published in the Journal of Bronchology & Interventional Pulmonology in 2018 described the first large patient series using CBCT with augmented fluoroscopy combined with more conventional navigational bronchoscopy techniques to biopsy 93 lesions with a median size of 16.0 mm in 75 consecutive patients.. Answer: Sure! CPT 31622 (diagnostic bronchoscopy) may be separately reported when both of these criteria are met: 1) a separate piece of equipment, other than that used for the direct laryngoscopy, is used, and 2) the scope entered the right and/or left bronchus.
