The layers of the bronchial wall can be visualized clearly where the first layer is a thick hyperechoic layer, with the ultrasound pulse penetrating the bronchial wall perpendicularly . Because the balloon covers the lesion, it is sometimes difficult to ascertain whether an often thin bronchial lesion, visible bronchosopically, has been actually been 27 Endobronchial Ultrasonography covered by the balloon to allow successful ultrasound scanning. There are two ways of solving this problem. The first is to place the deflated balloon directly against the lesion to confirm its presence, then re-inflate the balloon and scan the entire 360° circumference to accurately identify the position of the lesion.

Tokyo, IGAKU-SHOIN, 1998, p. 7) For approaching #4L LN, the convex bronchoscope is inserted to the distal site of the trachea. On the bronchoscopic findings, the left side of the trachea is located at the 12 o’clock direction. While scanning at the 12 o’clock direction, we can confirm the largest area of the #4L LN. While pushing the scope to the distal site about 1–2 cm, we can observe the left main pulmonary artery.
