GOMEZ, Martín Alonso. Usefulness of endosonography in pneumology. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2009, vol.24, n.4, pp.382-387. ISSN 0120-9957.

The endosonography not only has applications in gastroenterology but in other areas as pneumology. The endosonography is useful to evaluate mediastinal areas like the aorto-pulmonary window, the subcarinal space and the para-aortic zone. With the ecobronchoscopy the para-tracheal spaces can be evaluated; therefore, with these two equipment the whole mediastinum can be evaluated and also a proper staging of the pulmonary cancer can be done, with no need of more invasive procedures as the mediastinoschopy.

Keywords : Pulmonary cancer; endosonography; mediastinoschopy.
