... Abstract Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) is a promising new modality first introduced in the early 1990s. The radial probe EBUS was initially developed in the search for high resolution imaging of processes within the airway wall and also outside the airways. The structure of special importance...

... Abstract Radial-type endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) is useful for a diagnosis based on the depth of invasion of bronchial carcinoma, because it has the ability to analyze the delicate layer structure of the airway wall. EBUS is the most efficient tool to establish candidates for photodynamic...

... in PET-positive mediastinal lesions, the findings should always be cyto- or histologically confirmed. Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) is a relatively new technique that provides a better view into the mediastinum. EBUS-guided transbronchial needle aspiration is an additional ultrasound technique, which...
