Access — Localizing the Lesion with Confidence
Getting closer to the periphery with the ultra-thin scope or with a combination of a scope and the GuideSheath.
The diagnosis of peripheral pulmonary lesions has been a challenge over the past decades and the range of diagnostic procedures is wide. Bronchoscopy, with a reported pneumothorax rate of only 1.5%, is the least invasive approach to peripheral lesions
As the world leader in endoscopy, Olympus offers a choice of two bronchoscopic sampling solutions: The combination of a scope and the GuideSheath Kit 2 or the new ultrathin BF-MP190F/290F scope.
Supporting Direct Access to the Periphery
The new BF-MP190F ultrathin bronchoscope improves access to deep lung areas, helps approach the lesion, and in combination with the miniature ultrasound probe enables real-time imaging of the surrounding tissue allowing the clinician to determine the lesion's exact location and size.Read more about the BF-MP190/290F Watch the BF-MP190/290F in action
While already providing established biopsy forceps and brushes, Olympus has released the new 21G biopsy needle PeriView FLEX compatible with the BF-MP190/290F and the GuideSheath. The needle is expected to help to increase the diagnostic yield in the periphery as well as to improve access to target sites thanks to enhanced needle flexibility.
