Thoracic endosonography, either endobronchial or esophageal ultrasound controlled needle aspiration, is a minimally invasive diagnostic technique.
Procedure: Thoracic endosonography
Thoracic endosonography is a minimal invasive diagnostic intervention
- Diagnostic sensitivity [ Time Frame: One year ]The primary aim is to assess the nature and prevalence of abnormal findings in samplings obtained during E(B)US-NA in the non-cancer patient with CT enlarged mediastinal/hilar lymph nodes that are not visible on chest X-ray.
- Clinical impact. [ Time Frame: One year ]As secondary aims, the clinical implications of E(B)US-NA findings will be assessed, in particular the number of cases where a specific treatment is initiated.
