ConclusionsThe use of intraoperative electromagnetic transthoracic nodule localization prior to thoracoscopic resection of small and/or difficult to palpate lung nodules is safe and effective, potentially eliminating the need for direct nodule palpation. Use of this technique aids in minimally invasive localization and resection of small, deep and/or ground-glass lung nodules.
