What is Electromagnetic Navigational Bronchoscopy (ENB)?
ENB is a minimally invasive medical procedure performed to thoroughly examine the lungs and diagnose certain health conditions including lung cancer. This advanced bronchoscopy technique uses state-of-the-art technology that allows our doctors to obtain tissue samples and enhances the ability to diagnose and potentially treat a variety of diseases. Our physicians use specialized software to digitally identify targets using images from a CT scan and then guide a bronchoscope (a thin, flexible tube with a camera) with extreme precision to the target using GPS-like technology. By manipulating a variety of small, flexible tools inserted through the bronchoscope, our physicians are able to image and biopsy lymph nodes and nodules using transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) or transbronchial forceps biopsy that would be otherwise difficult to reach with a traditional diagnostic bronchoscope.
