Endobronchial Ultrasound-Guided Transbronchial Needle Aspiration: Evaluating Lesions of the Lung and Mediastinum
Barbara E. Chadwick, MD
Endobronchial ultra-sonography with transbronchial needle aspiration biopsy (EBUS-TBNA) is a minimally invasive technique, increasingly being used to sample paratracheal, hilar or mediastinal lymph nodes or mass lesions for staging or diagnosis. EBUS-TBNA consists of fine needle aspiration performed with the assistance of a bronchoscope with an integrated ultrasound probe, often followed by rapid on-site cytologic evaluation. This webinar discusses the indications and limitations of this technique, appropriate handling of the cytologic specimen, and cytomorphologic diagnoses commonly encountered in this context.
