What is Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy

Description: Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy® (ENB)™ extends the reach the bronchoscope to regions deep within the lung enabling physicians to locate small lung lesions for diagnostic testing and potential treatment. The system uses natural airway access, and implements proprietary software and electromagnetic technology.

Benefits: ENB minimizes the need for more invasive, surgical procedures to access lung lesions in the distant regions of the lung. These procedures may require an inpatient hospital stay or cause complications such as collapsed lung (pneumothorax).

ENB also provides the ability to detect lung disease and lung cancer earlier, even before symptoms are evident, enhancing treatment options for patients.
