Advanced Lung Cancer Diagnosis and Lung Cancer Staging

Memorial Cancer Institute’s thoracic surgery team performs minimally invasive, technologically advanced lung cancer diagnosis and lung cancer staging procedures that reduce the need for surgery. These include endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), esophageal endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and navigational bronchoscopy. These technologies allow your doctor to more accurately diagnose and stage tumors, even if they’re very small.

Memorial Cancer Institute’s commitment to ongoing lung cancer research and clinical trials and our weekly lung cancer tumor board keep your doctors on the leading-edge of lung cancer diagnosis methods.
