Endobronchial Ultrasound, or EBUS technology is a pulmonary diagnostic tool providing real-time images of the lungs and surrounding areas. It is a critical instrument for diagnosing cancer, infections and inflammatory diseases impacting the lungs.
EBUS offers these benefits:
- Dramatically improves accuracy in diagnosing cancer stages to determining potential treatment paths.
- Provides the possibility of less invasive surgeries for patients with early-stage lung cancer.
- Allows physicians to view live images to determine if cancer is active in the patient’s windpipe or nodes on the other lung
