Endobronchial ultrasonography (EBUS) is an exciting and still developing diagnostic tool that has added significantly to the diagnosis and staging of lung cancer and other thoracic diseases. Co-authored by one of the technology's pioneers, this book helps the reader to use EBUS to diagnose and stage lung cancer and a variety of different tumours of the chest region.
The second edition of Endobronchial Ultrasonography covers all of the standard techniques and the very latest developments and guidelines involved in EBUS, combining two common procedures, bronchoscopy and real-time ultrasonography, allowing physicians to obtain precise biopsies of lymph nodes and masses within the chest cavity.
