Peripheral lung lesions are increasing in numbers. Endoscopic diagnosis is essential for the prevention of unnecessary operations. Conventional diagnostic procedures have limitations in their availability and results. Endobronchial ultrasonography (EBUS) is a new technique used to diagnose chest diseases. This practical guide to the use of EBUS to diagnose and stage lung cancer and the variety of different tumours of the chest region covers all of the standard techniques and the new developments involved in EBUS, as it combines two common procedures -- bronchoscopy and real-time ultrasonography. More than 250 high-quality digital color images illustrate the different applications. Case presentations at the end of the application chapters aid in helping to reach a diagnosis.
