n.
a diagnostic imaging technique utilizing reflected ultrasonic waves to delineate, measure, or examine internal body structures or organs.
[1950–55]
ultrasound, ultrasonography - Ultrasounds and ultrasonography work on the principle that sound is reflected at different speeds by tissues or substances of different densities.

There are two types of EBUS probes: the radial probe EBUS (RP-EBUS) and convex probe EBUS (CP-EBUS).
South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust's EBUS lead, consultant respiratory physician Dr Liz Fuller, said: "The images allow us to view difficult to reach areas and to access more, and smaller, lymph nodes for biopsy, leading to a speedy diagnosis.
The technology is available in two forms: rad ial EBUS and linear EBUS-TBNA probes.
EBUS technique, using a radial probe (RP) with a rotating transducer at the distal tip, which produces a 360s[degrees] image to the long axis of the bronchoscope, was used.
Once the target lesion had been visualized by ultrasound, a dedicated needle was assessed through the working channel of the EBUS bronchoscope and punctured through the tracheobronchial wall into the lesion under real-time ultrasound visualization.
The inclusion of mini probe facilities (integral to modern EBUS) would further enhance the diagnostic capability of the EBUS system.
This book is co-authored by one of the technology's pioneers and will help the reader to use EBUS to diagnose and stage lung cancer and a variety of different tumours of the chest region.
