Technology has reached our doorstep ( the establishment where I work rather ) provided the price is right. ( It never is...of course. We can but hope).The picture above is that of the machine which will enable imaging in real life of all those ghastly lymph nodes you occasionally ache to biopsy. Having attended the workshop, with a revision of anatomy we then got a chance to get a feel of this and see for ourselves how it will revolutionize ( in a small way ) our ability of diagnose and stage lung cancers more accurately. How cool is that? The machine was on loan and is probably back to where it belongs now. BOohoo

NB: EBUS stands for endobronchial ultrasound.
