Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Lung cancer is the top killer of cancer.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 2. 
    What percentage of lung cancer is caused by smoking?
    • A. 

      50%

    • B. 

      63%

    • C. 

      87%

    • D. 

      94%

  • 3. 
    What does an Endobronchial Ultrasound help do and how does it work?
    • A. 

      An Endobronchial Ultrasound helps with the staging of a tumor. A bronchoscope is inserted into the lung with an ultrasound on the tip. There is a slot that houses a needle to biopsy the lymph nodes.

    • B. 

      An Endobronchial Ultrasound helps take images of the lung. A long scope is inserted directly into the chest cavity. The scope takes 30 images with a 360 degree rotation. The images are sent to a computer where the oncologist is able to examine the images.

    • C. 

      An Endobronchial Ultrasound helps with the placement of fiducial markers. An x-ray is taken of the lung and lymph nodes, the endobronchial ultrasound is then inserted in the area of the tumor(s) for implantation of fiducial markers.

  • 4. 
    What is the benefit of a navigational bronchoscopy?
    • A. 

      Performs biopsies

    • B. 

      Delivers High Dose Radiation (HDR)

    • C. 

      Explains the distance that the bronchoscope can travel into the lung.

    • D. 

      All of the above

  • 5. 
    What is an autofluorescence bronchoscopy?
    • A. 

      This shows where treatment is being delivered to within the lung.

    • B. 

      This lights up cancer cells and it can show cells that haven't grown into a tumor yet.

    • C. 

      This lights up the path that a bronchoscope can follow.

  • 6. 
    What is the most common reason for bronchoscopes not being able to reach a tumor within the lung?
    • A. 

      Scar tissue

    • B. 

      Malformations of the lung

    • C. 

      The tumor is too small

    • D. 

      Due to small bronchi

  • 7. 
    For High Dose Rate (HDR) Lung Brachytherapy, the tumor usually has to be in the lower airways.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 8. 
    What is true about interventional pulmonology?
    • A. 

      Looks at reasons for shortness of breath. This is not only used for lung cancer; it can be used for breast cancer, colon cancer, renal cancer and melanoma.

    • B. 

      This increases the likelihood for cure by 29%.

    • C. 

      CTCA was the first to combine interventional pulmonology with various treatments.

  • 9. 
    What does HAST stand for and what is this used for?
    • A. 

      High Assessment Smoking Test - Determines how much this patient is smoking.

    • B. 

      High Altitude Simulation Testing - Determines if the patients is able to fly.

    • C. 

      High Altitude Simulation Testing - Determines if the patients needs oxygen while flying.

  • 10. 
    In terms of lung cancer, what is intratumoral chemotherapy used for?
    • A. 

      Small Cell Lung Cancer

    • B. 

      Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
