Peripheral Pulmonary Lesions
Reach better diagnosis for your bronchoscopy procedure
Physicians have been using Cellvizio to image lung tissue from proximal airways down to alveoli in patients presenting pulmonary lesions.
In the context of pulmonary lesions, Optical Biopsy can assist the physician or surgeon in :
Targeting the Lung with Cellvizio
See how bronchoscopists using Cellvizio in the lung may benefit from an enhanced patient care and increased visibility
Pulmonology - Normal Lung Alveoli
"Compact Alveoli" pattern assisted cancer detection with sensitivities ranging from 70% to 80%2
Normal Lung Bronchi
CLE may lead to an optimized rapid in vivo diagnosis of neoplastic changes in patients with suspected lung cancer
