Two internationally known interventional pulmonologists will discuss current guidelines and their own experiences regarding sampling of lung lesions and mediastinal adenopathy. Specifically, the panelists will discuss the pros and cons of various diagnostic strategies and sampling techniques, including transcutaneous and bronchoscopic biopsies. This interactive webinar will offer the opportunity for learners to ask questions prior to and during the event. Learning is augmented by a few follow-up quizzes weeks after the webinar, a strategy proven to improve knowledge gain and retention.
