EM2206H "Robotic assisted bronchoscopy for the diagnosis of lung nodules" (IM GR-061722)
Purpose and Overview
The purpose is to educate medical professionals regarding current advances in advanced diagnostic bronchoscopy including robotic assisted bronchoscopy with adjunct advanced imaging modalities for the evaluation and diagnosis of lung nodules.
UT Southwestern faculty, fellows, residents and medical students, community physicians, nurse clinicians, physician assistants and nurses.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participant should be able to:
- Discuss the clinical importance of lung nodules and describe the initial evaluation of patients with lung nodules suspicious for malignancy including obtaining clinical history, prior imaging and assessing malignancy risk.
- Describe the utility of different advanced diagnostic bronchoscopy techniques combined with adjunct advanced imaging modalities in sampling lung nodules.
- Identify patients that may benefit from undergoing robotic assisted bronchoscopy to sample lung nodules.
