This comprehensive program offers advanced diagnostic evaluation of lung nodules and endoscopic lung cancer staging using endobronchial ultrasound to complement mediastinoscopy. This helps more accurately stage patients with lung cancer, along with GPS-guided bronchoscopy tools to navigate and biopsy hard-to-reach peripheral lung nodules with significantly greater precision. The program also assists patients with advanced airway disease requiring tumor excision and airway stenting.
