BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Endobronchial ultrasound is a revolutionary diagnostic pulmonary procedure. The use of a computer endobronchial ultrasound simulator could improve trainee procedural skills before attempting to perform procedures on patients. This study aims to compare endobronchial ultrasound performance following training with simulation versus conventional training using patients. METHODS A prospective study of pulmonary medicine and thoracic surgery trainees. Two cohorts of… CONTINUE READING
