Diagnosis and Treatment of Bronchial Intraepithelial Neoplasia and Early Lung Cancer of the Central Airways: Diagnosis and Management of Lung Cancer, 3rd ed: American College of Chest Physicians Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines

This is a clinical practice guideline for patients with suspected or diagnosed bronchial intraepithelial neoplasia (BIN) or early lung cancer of the central airways. Autofluorescence bronchoscopy (AFB) is compared to white light bronchoscopy (WLB) as a diagnostic assessment tool, and treatment options are reviewed including surgical resection and endobronchial treatment with photodynamic therapy (PDT), brachytherapy, cryotherapy, or electrocautery. Outcomes of interest include treatment response, recurrence, and progression rates.
