It is an exciting time for interventional pulmonology (IP) and advanced bronchoscopy procedures. In order to turn IP team aspirational goals into actions, we are eager to develop our knowledge on the care of patients with thoracic diseases through synergy of innovative technologies, minimally invasive procedures, and transformative education and research. As stated in the newly decade of diagnosis and therapeutic success and beyond the recognition, there is now a true sense of momentum and excitement that we can harness the best collective advances to publish "ADVANCED ATLAS OF INTERVENTIONAL PULMONOLOGY PROCEDURES" By conducting high-quality research and delivering evidence-based care we would be able to provide better and even the first-class education.
