The study evaluates the role of radio-guided surgery (RGS) with 111In-octreotide in the treatment of lung neoplasms. RGS with octreotide appears to be useful in surgery, above all during the intraoperative staging of the tumour; it can define with greater precision the extent of the resections extended towards the lung wall and ensure a radical approach in minimal lung resections.
