How does EBUS work?

Your doctor will perform a bronchoscopy, a procedure where a tube is inserted through your mouth or nose into the airways around your lungs. Once it is inserted, doctors use a special ultrasound probe to transmit sound waves, or ultrasound, through the walls of your airways to their surrounding regions, including your lungs and the area between the lungs. If something abnormal is seen, a sample tissue is taken by a small needle with the guidance of the ultrasound. A lab checks the sample for cancer or some other abnormality.
