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 and confirming that the area of interest for 
    histological sampling is reached 2 4
  • Visualizing immediately abnormal tissues1-5

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
