Additionally it can be used to place markers for more exact surgical borders.
  • Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS). A sophisticated approach to sampling lymph nodes and lung nodules deep in the chest near the main airway that offers guided access to areas not obtainable with mediastinoscopy.
  • Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS). This procedure allows the doctor to obtain images and information about the chest, digestive tract and the surrounding tissue and organs. The ultrasound probe at the end of the scope allows us to biopsy structures visualized under ultrasound guidance for testing.
  • Tissue Analysis. Pioneering technologies include genetic tumor profiling and chemosensitivity assays to assist in personalized therapeutic guidance for malignant nodules.
