The Gold Standard for Lung Cancer Staging
A Reliable Procedure
Endobronchial ultrasound transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is a reliable and commonly established technique that enables the visualisation and sampling of mediastinal, central, or hilar lesions and lymph nodes within the tracheobronchial tree.
With the ultrasonic bronchoscope BF-UC180F inserted into the trachea or the oesophagus, the accessible lymph node stations can be explored and the lesions outlined, while offering you the freedom to select from different EBUS needle line ups and sizes depending on your needs.
The linear ultrasound bronchoscope BF-UC180F is especially designed for lymph node staging, including interlobar nodes, hilar nodes, and the mediastinum.
The large 2.2 mm working channel offers you the freedom to select from EndoTherapy devices like the dedicated 22G, 21G, or 19G EBUS-TBNA needles.
Improved sample size for enhanced diagnostic capabilities and targeted lung cancer therapy.
Key Evidence and Benefits:
EBUS-TBNA has proven to be of great value not only for lymph node staging (N-staging) but also for the strategic use of cytology and histology samples for molecular analysis. The acquired specimen can be used to obtain a reliable diagnosis as well as for cell-block preparation, immunochemistry, and molecular studies.
