Abstract

Peripheral pulmonary lesions are an increasingly common finding in clinical practice. Electromagnetic navigation and radial probe endobronchial ultrasound have improved the diagnostic yield of bronchoscopy for peripheral lesions, although these techniques remain largely underutilized. One potential barrier to the adoption of these techniques may be the lack of an appropriate model to train clinicians on the various aspects of peripheral bronchoscopy. This report describes the development of a human cadaveric model with artificially implanted tumor targets designed to train physicians on aspects of peripheral bronchoscopy, including electromagnetic navigation and radial probe endobronchial ultrasound.
