Peripheral Bronchoscopy with Radial EBUS
As lung cancer screening is more readily adopted, ways to diagnose and treat the disease at its earliest stage is more critical than ever before. Only the Olympus EBUS Solution offers radial EBUS, which is recommended in the 2013 AACP Lung Cancer Guidelines for real-time confirmation of lesion location.
The radial EBUS procedure is performed by inserting a miniature ultrasound probe (radial EBUS probe) through the working channel of a flexible bronchoscope or catheter (guide sheath). Real-time imaging of the surrounding tissue enables the clinician to determine the lesion's exact location and size.
