A Fine Approach to the Mediastinium with EBUS & EUS guided Fine Needle Biopsies

S Monaco

This webinar will focus on practical and technical aspects of EBUS transbronchial needle aspirations (TBNA) and other endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided fine needle biopsies and how they can be used to diagnose mediastinal lesions, provide staging for patient´s with lung cancer, and provide material for theranostic studies.
