Session
Chairs: L. Thiberville (Rouen, France), P. Shah (London, United Kingdom)
Aims: It is important to correctly diagnose and stage the many patients with suspected lung cancer that the clinician will encounter in pulmonary practice. The techniques that will be demonstrated in this session are confocal endoscopy, transparenchymal nodule access (TPNA), EBUS/EUS-B and advanced thoracoscopy. The aim is to demonstrate and comment on established methods such as EBUS and advanced thoracoscopy as well as to introduce the upcoming options such as confocal endoscopy and TPNA.
