The purpose of this study was to evaluate the applica­bility of ultrasound-guided percutaneous biopsy for the diagnosis and differentiation of various pulmonary lesions in a Chinese population. A total of 338 pulmonary lesions were biopsied with 18-gauge cutting needles, guided by ultrasound, and sent for histopathological analy­sis. The ultrasonographic characteristics of these lesions, procedure complications, and histopathological diagnoses were analyzed.
