Abstract

The description of precise intrabronchial positions for the sampling of mediastinal-hilar lymph nodes is critical to successfully perform conventional transbronchial needle aspiration. Previously published maps of mediastinal-hilar lymph nodes were primarily drawn based on experts’ experience. We generated a virtual map of the most frequently sampled intrathoracic lymph nodes from an intrabronchial perspective using a virtual bronchoscopic navigation system, to assist with training in conventional transbronchial needle aspiration.
