Mediastinoscopy is a procedure that enables visualization of the contents of the mediastinum, usually for the purpose of obtaining a biopsy. Mediastinoscopy is often used for staging of lymph nodes of lung cancer for diagnosing other conditions affecting structures in the mediastinum such as sarcoidosis or lymphoma.

Mediastinoscopy involves making an incision approximately 1 cm above the jugular fossa of the sternum, or breast bone. Dissection is carried out and strapped up to space and down to the keel. Then, the mediastinoscope is advanced region in the created tunnel which provides a view of the mediastinum. Sphere can provide direct visualization or can be attached to video monitor.

Mediastinoscopy provides access to mediastinal lymph node levels 2, 4 and 7.
