Radial EBUS Probes

Endobronchial Ultrasound

Radial EBUS Probes

Compatible with channel diameters of 2.0 mm, 2.6 mm, and 2.8 mm, radial EBUS probes can be inserted directly through the bronchoscope or used with the Olympus Guide Sheath Kit for a cost effective solution that can aid in accessing and sampling peripheral pulmonary lesions.

Key Benefits

  • Precise, real time confirmation: Only Olympus radial EBUS probes provide real-time confirmation of lesion location, which clinical evidence has shown to increase diagnostic yield.*
  • 360-degree, real time visualization:  Radial EBUS provides a 360-degree image of the airway wall and surrounding structures external to the airway. The unique mechanical scanning technique produces a real-time ultrasound image enabling direct visualization of the exact position of the lesion for sampling. 
  • Proven technology: Pooled clinical data demonstrates that radial EBUS provides a more accurate alternative to conventional transbronchial bronchoscopy, without the increased risk of clinical complications associated with CT-guided transthoracic needle aspiration (TTNA).**
