SESSION TITLE: Advancements in Lung Cancer Diagnostics and Treatment

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Slide

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 08:45 AM - 10:00 AM

PURPOSE: For Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) staging, combined endobronchial ultrasonography fine needle aspiration (EBUS-FNA) and endoscopic ultrasonography fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) is recommend by the current European Respiratory Society and European Society of Thoracic Surgeons guidelines over either test alone. Currently, many major teaching institutions in Europe and Canada are using combined EBUS and EUS staging in the same setting, performed by a single experienced operator. However, to our knowledge, only a few institutions in the United States perform combined endoscopic staging for lung cancer in a single setting. In this study, our goal is to evaluate the utility of combined EBUS and EUS staging of the mediastinum for NSCLC in a single setting in an ACGME accredited pulmonary fellowship training program.
