The use of one single ultrasound echoendoscope in both the trachea (EBUS) and the oesophagus (EUS-B) gives a fast, safe and precise diagnosis and stage of the patient with suspected lung cancer. There is solid evidence for simulator-based training in EBUS concerning safety and diagnostic outcome, but this is currently not an option in EUS-B and needs development. In this review, we recommend evidence-based simulator training and certification in EBUS and when available also in EUS-B before practicing on patients.
