Lung Cancer Staging (EBUS/EUS)
As a leader in endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), Olympus offers an easy to use, ultrasonic bronchoscope, specifically designed for diagnostic biopsies and staging in the lung. The scope’s innovative design enables physicians to visualize lymph nodes and surrounding vessels in real-time, via ultrasound, while simultaneously viewing the endoscopic image. The Olympus EBUS-TBNA system makes biopsies safer and more accurate than conventional “blind” TBNA and offers a less invasive, less costly alternative to mediastinoscopy. Take advantage of superior ultrasound imaging with the Olympus endobronchial ultrasound system.
The EU-ME1 is the world’s first fully integrated compact endoscopic ultrasound processor. Designed specifically for EUS and endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) diagnostic, therapeutic, and interventional applications, the EU-ME1 uses advanced technology to drive mechanical scanning endoscopes and probes as well as electronic scanning endoscopes. The ideal solution for GI endoscopists performing EUS and pulmonologists and thoracic surgeons performing EBUS, the EU-ME1 uniquely brings together exceptional endoscopic imaging, ultrasound scanning, and interventional capability compatible with Olympus EUS and EBUS products.
As the leader in endobronchial ultrasound, Olympus introduces the second-generation endobronchial ultrasound transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) system featuring Aloka ProSound Alpha5 (a5) ultrasound compatibility. The BF-UC180F, capitalizes on advanced imaging capabilities of Aloka and next-generation Olympus ultrasound processors. EBUS-TBNA with the BF-UC180F permits visualization of the needle on the video monitor as well as on the ultrasound image, enabling the physician to more accurately guide the needle into the lymph node to obtain pathology samples.
