Abstract

Transthoracic needle aspiration biopsy (TNAB) is the procedure of choice for the diagnosis of focal pulmonary processes. TNAB can identify the entire spectrum of focal benign or malignant disease. Technique-dependent factors and the underlying pathologic processes that affect the diagnostic yield of TNAB are reviewed.
