The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of Cryo with endobronchial ultrasonography using a guide sheath (EBUS-GS) for peripheral pulmonary lesions (PPLs) to assess the volume of specimen, determine DNA sequencing analysis, and evaluate the utility of rapid on-site evaluation (ROSE).
