Electromagnetic Navigational BronchoscopyThink of a navigation system in a car. Plug in the destination, and the GPS (global positioning system) uses satellites to help identify where that location is, put it on a map and give you the most logical course to get there.
Electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy (ENB) works in a similar way. ENB guides different tools to preselected locations or nodules within the lung, and, in conjunction with peripheral radial probe ultrasound, utilizes real-time images. At Henry Ford, we use the superDimension system, which we implement in situations where a biopsy attempt has failed, if the lesion is greater than 3 cm in size, or other appropriate situations.
