Other design features
Bronchoscopic injection of Technetium-99 into carina of lung lobe in which lung mass is stiuated will be performed following diagnostic sampling.
Single Photon Emission computerized tomography combined with conventional computerized tomography (SPECT/CT) chest will be performed in order to visualize drainage of radio-isotope to regional lymph nodes in order to identify sentinel node.

Summary
Brief summary
This study looks at the feasibility of using Technitium, injected via a bronchoscope, for the detection of the sentinel lymph node in suspected non-small cell lung cancer

Who is it for?
You can join this study if you are: - about to undergo flexible bronchoscopy for the diagnosis of suspected non-small cell lung cancer - 40-85 years of age - prepared to accept the 2% risk of developing a pneumothorax (collapsed lung) with this treatment.

Trial details
While having their scheduled bronchoscope, participants will receive injection of technetium dye into the region of the lung which has the lung cancer. The technetium will allow any sentinel lymph nodes to be identified by a non-invasive Nuclear Medicine imaging test called a SPECT/CT scans, 4 hours after the injection. The study will look at the effectiveness and safety of this procedure.
