Interventional Pulmonology - Dr. Ganesh Krishna - Nov. 27, 2012

Dr. Ganesh Krishna of Sutter Health explains the emerging field of interventional pulmonology and the advantages that it gives to lung cancer patients in terms of screening, biopsy, treatment options, and palliative care. In gaining non-invasive access to the peripheral areas of the lung, patients are able to gain deeper and more accurate insight into their PET and CT scans, often avoiding unnecessary surgery, or having confidence in undergoing surgery earlier than would have been done prior to the advent of this technology. Dr. Krishna explains electromagnetic navigation, endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and more.
