Accurate lesion targeting and optimal diagnostic yield
During transbronchial biopsy procedures, tool in lesion confirmation proves navigation success and it may lead to increased diagnostic yield. In one study, tool in lesion confirmation was the strongest predictor of biopsy success.
Intraprocedural 3D imaging facilitates real-time updates of lesion location and tool position, as well as feedback on status of navigation. Cone-beam imaging lets you confidently pinpoint anatomical structures, implants, screws, and devices.
Potential applications for this technology include transbronchial biopsy, cryobiopsy, broncholith extraction, and airway stent placement.
