Our new Lung Cancer Biopsy Appeal for £150,000 will ensure people with suspected lung cancer have a quicker, safer and more accurate diagnosis.
The new appeal will introduce the innovative use of Peripheral Navigational Bronchoscopy to Stoke Mandeville hospital. Navigational bronchoscopy is performed using the latest, advanced technology which works like a GPS system. A three-dimensional roadmap of the lungs is created which allows clinicians to reach much deeper into the lungs.
There are a number of reasons why a doctor may order a bronchoscopy, from a chronic cough, to symptoms indicating lung disease, to abnormal X-ray findings. A bronchoscopy allows the clinician to look inside your airway through a video camera, examine the lungs for abnormalities, and obtain tissue samples to help with diagnosis and treatment.
The state of the art peripheral navigation bronchoscope uses advanced technology to perform the procedure with less complications and greater precision. Clinicians can access the most distant regions of the lungs to detect and biopsy even the smallest lesions. Currently these suspected cancers are difficult to biopsy and patients may be referred to hospitals outside of Bucks for biopsy, which could lead to a delay
