SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Slide

PURPOSE: Convex Probe Endobronchial Ultrasound (CP-EBUS) with transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) is used to sample mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes and is considered a gold standard for mediastinal staging of lung cancer. The current technology is limited in ability to sample lesions located away from the mediastinum. The aim of this study was to evaluate the range of a new Thin Convex Probe EBUS prototype in a cadaveric model. Our objectives were to compare the accessibility of a Thin Convex Probe EBUS (TCP-EBUS) bronchoscope into distal airways to that of a standard flexible and CP-EBUS bronchoscope using a cadaveric model.
