EBUS-TBNA training

The PENTAX Medical Forward Academy™ EBUS-TBNA is a comprehensive training curriculum inspired by ESGE and ERS guidelines and curricula for achieving proficiency in performing endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration.

Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is now the most important tool in the diagnosis, staging, and molecular testing of patients with lung cancer. EBUS-TBNA is also highly valued in the diagnostic workup of unclear mediastinal and hilar lymphadenopathy. This technique is now used in many endoscopic centers, but due to its complexity requires appropriate training to achieve the best possible bronchoscopic diagnosis.

For this purpose, we have created the PENTAX Medical EBUS-TBNA course.

As proven experts in the field of EBUS-TBNA and cytological diagnostics, we invite you together with PENTAX Medical GmbH to improve your bronchoscopic skills with us.

We look forward to seeing you in Hamburg!
