Abstract

Key Points: • We describe a novel procedure, Endopharyngeal Ultrasound (EPhUS) and EPhUS-guided FNA • EPhUS requires an operator and an assistant, can be performed transnasal or transoral, and utilizes a Endoscopic Ultrasonography Bronchoscope • EPhUS is a safe and effective method for biopsy of deep space neck masses inaccessible to transcutaneous FNA
