This article has an accompanying continuing medical education activity, also eligible for MOC credit, on page e14. Learning Objective: Upon completion of this CME activity, successful learners will be able to (1) recognize a novel technique for the development of endoscopic treatment, (2) determine easy to detect lymph nodes accurately based on the presence of carbon nanoparticles, and (3) identify how to use a transesophageal endoscopic method for mediastinal lymph node resection.
