Fujifilm India has installed their first state-of-the-art Endobronchial Ultrasound System (EBUS) at ESIC Medical College & Hospital, Faridabad to assist doctors in carrying out advanced diagnosis pertaining to diseases of the lungs.
The inauguration was done by Bhupender Yadav, Union Cabinet Minister of Labour and Employment, and Krishna Pal Gujjar, Minister of State of Power and Heavy Industries.
Installed at the hospital’s respiratory medicine department, the system was inaugurated by the Medical Commissioner of ESIC Dr Anshu Chhabra, Mukhmeet S Bhatia (Director General) and TL Yaden (Financial Commissioner).
The Endobronchial Ultrasound System (EBUS) is designed to support diagnosis and staging of various lung disorders. With its enhanced distal angulation and a slim design, this bronchoscope provides innovative ways for doctors to use in a range of procedures. The bronchoscopy aids doctors to diagnose lung disorders including inflammation, cancer or infections. Using a tube which goes from the patient's mouth to the windpipe and lungs, the EBUS scope uses a video camera and ultrasound probe to image the lungs and lymph nodes for accurate location and evaluation of the system.
