WIMAT is now under the auspices of Cardiff University and runs multi-disciplinary training courses across a range of surgical and medical specialties.

Welsh Media Success for WIMAT Lung Cancer Course

The WIMAT course, held at University Hospital, Llandough, trained higher respiratory trainees from hospitals throughout Wales and the UK on the role of the EBUS procedure; the Endobronchial Ultrasound.

The procedure sends a flexible bronchoscope tube down the patient's nose and into the windpipe. A small camera films the journey, and an ultrasound probe at the end of the camera sends images to an ultrasound monitor which enables the doctor to monitor the lymph glands that sit at the centre of the chest (mediastinum). A biopsy of the lymph glands can also be taken.
