“Using the virtual bronchoscopic animation and 3 dimensional views helps us better prepare for bronchoscopy and complete biopsies faster than before. The overlay view allows us to see what is happening behind the airway wall. A great advantage of the system is that we do not need disposables.
“Virtual Bronchoscopic Navigation has increased my confidence in biopsying peripheral nodules and masses. It’s valuable to be able to directly see where I’m going as I am positioning the scope and biopsy instruments. The technology has enabled me to offer new bronchoscopic procedures such as fiducial marker placement. We were able to easily integrate the LungPoint technology into our bronchoscopy suite.
“LungPoint Planning provides a tremendous opportunity to accelerate someone’s ability to look at a CT scan and understand where the lesion is and how to get there. Fellows don’t have a good way to figure out where they are going, and this system enables them to learn the anatomy without having to do a bronchoscopic procedure.
