2018 Current Paradigms in Interventional Pulmonology: Endobronchial Ultrasound and Lung Cancer Staging Banner

Date & Location
Friday, September 7, 2018, 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Zuckerman Research Center 417 E 68th St, New York, NY

Target Audience

Endobronchial ultrasound has quickly become the standard of care, along with advanced peripheral bronchoscopy techniques, in the diagnosis and staging of thoracic malignancy, including primary and metastatic disease, as well as benign disease, such as sarcoidosis and tuberculosis. Optimally performing these procedures, in appropriate patients, is paramount. Suboptimal procedures greatly impair diagnostic yield. Furthermore, handling and processing the acquired specimens is often an afterthought by the bronchoscopist. This well-received annual CME course reviews these crucial advanced diagnostic and staging procedures, how to optimize performance in a multidisciplinary fashion and provides hands-on workshops with expert faculty.

Target Audience

This course is intended for practicing Pulmonologists, Intensivists and Thoracic Surgeons, as well as trainees, interested in advancing their understanding of endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), interventional bronchoscopy for diagnostics, including radial endobronchial ultrasound and navigation, and cytologic specimen processing.

Hands-On Workshops

Space is limited to 30 attendees only in order to allow each participant sufficient opportunity to interact with faculty - please be sure to register early. After the 30 hands-on slots are filled, attendees may register for the lecture-only portion.

Workshop topics will include:

  • Cytology & Specimen Processing
  • Radial EBUS
  • Navigation

Additional fees do apply for the workshop; please see registration for details.

This course is endorsed by the:
American Association for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology (AABIP)
