Endobronchial ultrasonography: practical aspects and clinical applications
Abstract
SUMMARY. Endobronchial ultrasonography (EBUS) is a major advance in bronchoscopy. Substantial scientific evidence has confirmed its usefulness in the diagnosis and staging of lung cancer, as well as in other clinical conditions. It is of growing importance that endoscopists can perform this imaging technique and interpret its findings accurately in order to optimize the diagnosis and treatment of patients. This article provides a practical and comprehensive review of the technique and its main indications. Pneumon 2007; 20(4):342–355
