Course Description:
The intent of this course is to summarize the importance and utility of endobronchial ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration (EBUS FNA). Rapid onset evaluation (ROSE) will be addressed, particularly the advantages and potential challenges associated with its implementation and use.

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify the various serosal spindle cell lesions one may encounter in biopsy specimens
  • Describe the common preanalytic variables encountered with lung cancer cytology specimens
  • Describe the benefits of, and challenges encountered with, endobronchial ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration specimens
