Dose Computed Tomography of the Thorax for Follow-up in Patients With Resected
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00188279
This study is designed to help decide whether a CAT scan performed at a
very low dose of radiation (Minimum dose CT scan) is better than a Chest X-Ray
in detecting recurrence of lung cancer in the chest (after surgery).
This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants

used in combined regime or as single agent proved to be effective and safe for
MAC. The investigators hypothesize that compared to the use of
remifentanil-based MAC protocol, the use of dexmedetomidine-based MAC protocol
for EBUS-TBNA will result in a lower incidence of major respiratory and
hemodynamic adverse events (bradypnea, apnea, oxygen desaturation, hypotension,
hypertension, bradycardia and tachycardia) with equivalent overall procedure
