Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy: Discussion of Rapid On-Site Cytologic Evaluation During Transbronchial Needle Aspiration

In our study, a diagnostic ROSE result frequently spared the need for additional sampling without a reduction in diagnostic yield. Avoiding transbron-chial biopsy likely reduced procedural risk. Reducing the number of samples sent to the laboratory lowered the overall cost of the procedure, and therefore ROSE was cost-effective. Utilizing ROSE did not shorten procedure time as time saved when ROSE was diagnostic was balanced by…
