Özet

Background Autofluorescence (AF) examination in thoracoscopy has not been used frequently. Here, our aim was to determine whether AF examination contributes additional information to white-light (WL) examination when attempting to detect malignant pleural lesions. We also liked to know whether the effectiveness of WL and AF-mode combination would be different for various pathologies or lesions of the pleura.
