EBUS Interdisciplinary Training Course

The ATS is hosting a training course on endobronchial ultrasound and minimally invasive mediastinal staging (EBUS), May 25‒26, at the Wequassett Resort and Golf Club in Chatham, Massachusetts. This interdisciplinary course is designed for pulmonologists, chest surgeons, gastroenterologists, and all other health care professionals interested in mediastinal evaluation. The objective of this course is to review pertinent principles of endoscopic ultrasound and its application in the aerodigestive tract, with a particular focus on staging of lung cancer. Participants will gain a solid understanding of the basic principles of ultrasound as they apply to the esophagus and tracheobronchial tree. All procedural indications and cancer staging principles will be reviewed.
