The Sonoelastographic Characters of non-complicated Bronchogenic Cyst: An Evaluation Using CP-EBUS

Post Date: November 24, 2021

Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)-based elastography is a noninvasive technology performed during EBUS, in which the relative stiffness of the tissues can be assessed as a color map, which can be used to differentiate the malignant from benign lesions.[1] This could guide the fine-needle aspirate site and could improve the diagnostic yields. There has been a paucity of reports describing EBUS elastography images and color combinations for nonmalignant lesions. Herein, we report the EBUS elastography image of a mediastinal bronchogenic cyst, which looked homogenous, with a single color enhancement on the elastography mode.
