Beebe Healthcare uses navigational broncoscopy to find and reach tumors in the periphery of the lungs, where nearly two-thirds of all lung lesions are found.

Navigational Bronchoscopy uses GPS-like technology to create a three-dimensional virtual roadmap of the lungs. This map helps physicians guide a set of catheters through the lungs’ most complex airways. It is a minimally invasive technology that allows our physicians to diagnose and prepare to treat lesions using a single procedure. This safer, less invasive alternative to diagnostic surgery is performed in an outpatient setting and most patients return home the same day as the procedure.
