CT scan alone is therefore not diagnostic, and histologic confirmation is required. Cytologic examination of pleural fluid classifies about 60% of malignant metastatic effusions; however, pleural diffuse malignant mesothelioma is not a diagnosis that can be rendered confidently in the vast majority of cases of pleural diffuse malignant mesothelioma. 3,4 Image-guided percutaneous needle biopsy of pleural thickening is a relatively safe procedure and has been shown to be superior to Abrams pleural biopsy and has largely replaced the latter approach5,6 (Fig.
Thirty-eight patients underwent EBUS, and nodal metastases were identified in 13 of 38 (34%) patients. Twenty-two EBUS-negative patients underwent surgery with nodal sampling, and there were 10 false negatives. Sensitivity and negative predictive value for EBUS were 59% and 57%, respectively. 25 reported on a prospective study of 32 consecutive patients with proven MPM who underwent endoscopic ultrasound and fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) of any enlarged lymph nodes. In total, 25 patients underwent fine needle aspiration and 27 patients had mediastinoscopy.
MRI was superior to CT in identifying invasion of the diaphragm (55% accuracy for CT versus 82% accuracy for MRI) and in identifying invasion of endothoracic fascia or solitary resectable foci of chest wall invasion (46% accuracy for CT versus 69% accuracy for MRI). 14 Forty-nine patients with p otentially resectable disease on CT scan underwent contrast-enhanced MRI. 13,14 Entwisle et al. propose that contrast-enhanced MRI is more accurate than unenhanced MRI when used for predicting resectability.
