Reaching and Sampling a Peripheral Pulmonary Lesion. When Is a Technology Ready for Clinical Use?

With ongoing advances in technology, reaching and sampling peripheral pulmonary nodules has become possible in multiple different modalities. Pulmonologists find themselves at the forefront of an ever-innovative market to promise to successfully reach these elusive lesions. Within a short time span, numerous novel technologies have reached the market, while rigorous studies and the evidence behind their ultimate utility and yield is lagging behind. In this sesion, learn about...

Controversies in Diagnostic and Therapeutic Bronchoscopy: A Pro-Con Debate

The field of bronchoscopy has rapidly grown over the last 10 years with the development of new approaches that may improve our ability to diagnose and treat certain lung disease. Although these technologies are promising, the emerging data on these modalities is mixed and their role in clinical practice remains to be fully delineated. Our session will utilize a pro-con format to review key technologies (cryobiopsy for diffuse lung disease, bronchoscopy for the diagnosis of peripheral pulmonary...

Application of Biomarkers in NSCLC—From Screening to Diagnostics Through Therapeutic Follow-up

Minimally invasive approaches to early diagnosis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) have progressed rapidly; however, intermediate and lower-risk pulmonary nodules frequently present a diagnostic dilemma, and after bronchoscopy are still often referred for more invasive sampling. Adjunctive biomarkers are poised to improve our diagnostic algorithm and several have been shown to reduce the need for unnecessary surgical biopsy. The number and variety of biomarkers...
