Detailed Description:

A number of studies have proved EBUS-TBNA to be useful for lymph node staging in lung cancer. The diagnostic performance is equivalent to mediastinoscopy while the invasiveness is far less. This study primarily focusing on merged approach of cytology, histopathology and microbioloogy obatined by EBUS-TBNA for unselected mediastina lesions.
