This is the first app for iPhone and iPad released by the School of Respirology in cooperation with the Bronchoscopy Foundation. It helps the (future) bronchoscopist to acquire essential knowledge about bronchial anatomy. It contains bronchoscopy images and videos of a healthy volunteer that explain the normal anatomy. An additional tab shows the bronchial anatomy on CT scan. Now also available for Android.
Transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) is an important technique for bronchoscopists. The 'TBNA' app is designed to familiarize you with a concept that is easy to apply and will help you to determine the right location in any patient. A sequence of five images will take you from the CT scan to the actual bronchoscopy images step by step. A second tab 'boundaries' shows you the boundaries of the lymph node stations on the map.
