Bronchoscopy Update for the Technologist

by Cassling on Jun 7, 2023


The healthcare industry, and medicine, are constantly evolving and innovating. One of the relatively new fields in pulmonary medicine is interventional pulmonology (IP), which offers less invasive procedures with a flexible bronchoscope, often aided with guided imaging. In some cases, this may help avoid more invasive surgery.

This webinar will present an overview of the tools and technology, including ultrasound, fluoroscopy and cone beam CT, used in the identification and biopsy of lung lesions, patient pathways, and the future direction of lung cancer treatment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the historic and current tools and methods used by pulmonologists to biopsy lesions
  • Differentiate how ultrasound, fluoroscopy, and cone beam CT are used during bronchoscopy
  • Describe the patient journey from nodule to treatment
  • Discuss the future direction of bronchoscopic treatment of lung cancer
