Electromagnetic Navigation is an innovative procedure using electromagnetic technology, which allows steer ability and movability to obtain tissue samples of lung masses. As a pioneer and a leader in this breakthrough technology, UC San Diego Medical Center is proud to offer our patients this minimally invasive alternative to surgery.
ENB enhances the ability for physicians to diagnose and potentially treat a variety of lung diseases, including lung cancer. Physicians use specialized software to digitally identify targets using images from CT scans and then guide a bronchoscope to the target. By manipulating a variety of small, flexible tools inserted through the bronchoscope, physicians are able to image and biopsy mediastinal lymph nodes and distal lesions. UC San Diego Medical Center is the only center south of Orange County using this advanced ENB technology.
At UC San Diego Medical Center’s Interventional Pulmonology Unit, the following interventional pulmonologists specialize in the ENB procedure:
All referrals will still have the option of continuing their treatment with their primary care physicians after the ENB procedure.
