Cellvizio Optical Biopsy - A Window on Your Health
What if your doctor could view the individual cells inside your body and tell you immediately whether an area of interest was malignant or benign? With the help of the world’s smallest microscope, he or she may be able to do just that. Today, over 15 000 patients in top medical centers have benefitted from Cellvizio Optical Biopsy, and it may be able to help you, too.
What is Cellvizio Optical Biopsy? How does it work?
Cellvizio Optical Biopsy is a breakthrough medical imaging technique used by hundreds of doctors at leading institutions around the world. It is used during standard endoscopies to offer patients a more accurate diagnosis by enabling doctors to view tissue at the microscopic level, in real time.
Imagine your cells magnified onto a big screen by a tiny, powerful camera so that your doctor has a better chance of seeing and detecting cancer at the earliest stages. Cellvizio Optical Biopsy provides the ultimate close-up, a window on your health , that will allow your doctor to have more information than ever before, so that he or she can take immediate action.
Cellvizio has been cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration and has received the CE-Mark. It has been clinically validated in over 450 scientific publications and studies performed by world experts in their field.

Optical biopsy has been demonstrated to facilitate this traditional sampling and under certain conditions even potentially reduce the need for traditional examination.
