Planning an endobronchial procedure in the Hybrid OR

Endobronchial Interventions in the Hybrid ORPerfecting endobronchial biopsy and ablation with procedural intelligence

Our fixed C-arm portfolio with procedural intelligence* allows you to standardize your endobronchial interventions, so that you can stay on target and keep radiation exposure to a minimum in every case.

Endobronchial biopsies and ablations are crucial for patients with lung cancer. However, the success of these interventions depends on targeting accuracy to rule out false negative findings during biopsy and prevent damage to critical structures while ablating. Additionally, precision guidance is necessary for advancing the bronchoscope, and tool positioning should be verified via 3D imaging before the biopsy or ablation begins. Our Hybrid OR solutions deliver the imaging support you need to ensure optimal results in every patient case.

Procedural intelligence changes endobronchial interventions

Our fixed C-arms with procedural intelligence* help you standardize endobronchial interventions thanks to image-guided tumor targeting and image guidance for biopsies and ablations. With intelligent optimization of image quality and dose based on patient size and material in scope, along with automated C-arm positioning, treatment is greatly simplified. You can also standardize every workflow step thanks to Case Flows: select custom parameters for every procedure step just one time and then let the system set them automatically in the future.


Our assisted workflow for endobronchial interventions allows you to focus on the essential steps during imageguided bronchoscopies and ablations of small pulmonary nodules.

Review the clinical evidence

Using ARTIS pheno with procedural intelligence* for image-guided endobronchial interventions gives you precise control over targeting – and much more.

Cone Beam CT technology results in effective lung radiation doses of below 1 mSv only

Minimized radiation dose
With ARTIS pheno, you can keep radiation exposure to a minimum for your patients. Our Cone Beam CT technology results in an effective lung radiation dose of less than 1 mSv2, compared to an effective dose of 1-2 mSv for typical chest CT screenings.3
