LungVision Meets Unmet Needs in Lung Cancer Diagnosis

When radiologic imaging reveals a spot on the lung that physicians suspect may be lung cancer, a tissue biopsy is required to obtain a definitive diagnosis. Unlike lesions located in areas such as the stomach or colon, a lesion in the periphery of the lungs does not always have a clear, known or even visible pathway. A physician must advance a bronchoscope through the trachea into the lungs, where a complex network of airways branching into smaller airways presents very difficult challenges. Body Vision Medical has developed the Lung Vision solution which provides solutions to these specific challenges.
