ELECTROMAGNETIC NAVIGATION BRONCHOSCOPY PDFJuly 10, 2020
Electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy (ENB) is an image-guided, minimally invasive approach that uses a flexible catheter to access. Electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy (ENB) is intended to enhance standard bronchoscopy by providing a three-dimensional roadmap of the lungs and. Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy (ENB) is one of the more recent bronchoscopic tools for physicians to detect any lesion deep in the lung without.

Electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy: clinical utility in the diagnosis of lung cancer
Initially defined in and subsequently described in European Respiratory Society ERS and American Thoracic Society ATS guidelines, interventional pulmonology is “the art and science of medicine as related to the performance of diagnostic and invasive therapeutic procedures that require additional training and expertise beyond that required in a standard pulmonary medicine training program.
Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures pertaining to these areas include rigid bronchoscopy, transbronchial needle aspiration, autofluorescence bronchoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound, transthoracic needle aspiration and biopsy, laser bronchoscopy, endobronchial electrosurgery, argon-plasma navigztion, cryotherapy, airway stent insertion, balloon bronchoplasty and dilatation techniques, endobronchial radiation brachytherapyphotodynamic therapy, elecyromagnetic dilatational tracheotomy, transtracheal oxygen catheter insertion, medical thoracoscopy, and image-guided thoracic interventions.
This presentation focuses on electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy ENB.
Navigational systems use either electromagnetic or computer assistance to identify air columns in the lung to reach the final precise destination. The clinician’s inability to perform bronchoscopy safely and the patient’s ability to tolerate it safely are contraindications to the procedure. Multiple commercially available platforms to perform electronavigation bronchoscopy exist with slight variations in both pre-procedural planning and execution bronchoecopy the procedure.

We will address the procedural techniques in a general manner. Several preparatory steps are required prior to performing the bronchoscopy. A thin electgomagnetic CT scan is performed in order to be able to contruct a 3-dimensional rendering of the airway tree.
This allows for the creation of an airway map and delineation of a pathway to the target lesion. The CT images are then transferred to a laptop computer containing specific proprietary software and the electromagnrtic is planned, creating a “virtual map” that is placed in the navigational system.
The patient is positioned supine in an electromagnetic field with sensors placed over the chest so as to track bronchoscope via a guide that is advanced through the working channel of the bronchoscope.
The bronchoscope is directed towards the target via directions from the virtual map. Once the bronchoscope is advanced as far into airways as possible the guidance probe is advanced without the image guidance of the bronchoscope optic, rather using the detectors from the electromagnetic field.
Fluoroscopy or radial endobronchial ultrasound rEBUS are often bronchsocopy in combination with electromagnetic guidance technology to confirm the position prior to attempting to sample the target lesion.
