    Localization of deeply, small, non-visible and non-palpable subcentimetre nodules can be difficult during videoassisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) and even during minithoracotomy. Linear ultrasound probe helps surgeon find these undetermined nodules by VATS or thoracotomy technique without any need of digital palpation and has been demonstrated a safe and feasible technique alternative to computed tomography guided procedure (coils, hook wires, methylene blue, lipidol and barium staining). Herein, we describe a case who we preoperatively labeled peripheral lung lesion in the right lower lobe with methylene blue digitalization were not possible by palpation and peripheral two lesions were successfully demonstrated with the use of linear ultrasound probe during thoracic surgery. ..
