In his inaugural lecture as professor of Pulmonary Endoscopy, Jouke Annema will illustrate how technological developments within pulmonary endoscopy offer a promising future for the diagnosis and treatment of various pulmonary diseases.
Lung cancer, sarcoidosis, asthma and COPD are common diseases. To properly diagnose a spot on the lung or enlarged lymph nodes in the chest, an endoscopic tissue examination is annually performed on more than ten thousand patients in the Netherlands. As a result of innovative equipment in combination with sound waves, the accuracy of diagnoses has improved markedly in recent years. This in turn has decreased the need for surgical procedures.
