PURPOSE: Endobronchial Ultrasound Transbronchial Needle Aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is a minimally invasive, cost-efficient and well tolerated technique, which permits visualization of adjacent structures in the central airway via real-time ultrasound. Visualized images enable guided sampling of mediastinal and hilar structures. Indications include diagnosis, staging and re-staging of lung cancer, mediastinal assessment of metastatic lesions and study of non-malignant infectious and non-infectious lesions. It requires an initial evaluation from a multidisciplinary approach that includes patient’s general state, medical history analysis and images in order to evaluate risks and benefits of the procedure(1). A team-work with pathology is also necessary, undertaking an immediate evaluation in the room (ROSE) to improve the diagnostic performance(2).
