VIRTUAL BRONCHOSCOPIC NAVIGATION (VBN) SYSTEM

Image Guidance for Bronchoscopy

  • Provides real-time path navigation within the lungs for lung biopsy and other
    DX/TX procedures
  • Side-by-side navigation pairs real-time and virtual images throughout procedure
  • Navigation guides user to target with 3mm accuracy
  • System operation does not require specialized, disposable instruments

BRO-pic-1-interiorReal-time guidance with LungPoint® Virtual Bronchoscopic Navigation simultaneously shows the live and virtual views and the path to follow-with navigation accuracy of 3mm

VERSATILE PLANNING & SOPHISTICATED GUIDANCE

Easy Set-Up, Simple to Use

Import CT from PACS server, disc or flash drive

System reconstructs 3D airways/major vessels from CT scan; Calculates centerline for
each airway

User IDs target on CT image and up to 3 pathways are calculated based on target location

Virtual Bronchoscopic simulation of airway view for each pathway shows all airways greater than 3mm

Target is superimposed on virtual bronchoscopic view

Distance and airway diameter measurements provided, enabling localization of target

INTUITIVE GUIDANCE AND NAVIGATION

  • Target is superimposed on actual bronchoscopic view
  • Live view is displayed simultaneously alongside the virtual animation views and path, confirming location and orientation as you maneuver through the airways
  • Airway diameter measurements help size bronchoscope, stent, valve, implant devices
Plan in 3 dimentions: Quick access to all CT projections expands thinking beyond axial CT slice

BRO-pic-6-interiorVirtual Fluoroscopic View:
As the virtual bronchoscopic animation plays, the 3D airway tree and CT images update to reflect the current bronchoscope position.

FIDUCIAL MARKER PLANNING & PLACEMENT

  • Fiducial marker locations are automatically calculated based on the target location and user defined parameter settings
  • The primary target (green) and fiducials (yellow with green dots) are all displayed on the pink airways of the 3D airway tree and in 2D left and right fiducial projection views
  • The customizable projection views are based on the requirements of SBRT imaging angles
