Lung Cancer Staging
Olympus offers a full line of endoscopic devices which make possible advanced bronchoscopy procedures, including EBUS transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS TBNA) for visualization during sampling, and mediastinoscopies. Tissue sampling plays a critical role in lung cancer staging. Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) and transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) provide reliable, safe, and efficient methods for biopsy as an alternative to mediastinoscopy. The Olympus BF-UC180F ultrasound bronchoscope enables EBUS-guided TBNA for more accurate sample collection while advanced features on the Olympus WA52050A mediastinoscope ensure effective lymph node staging.
