Improved Patient Management Through Highly Accurate Cyst Assessment
Needle-based Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy (nCLE) with Cellvizio allows you to see the cyst wall at the microscopic level, in real time, for the first time through a high-speed flexible microscope threaded inside a 19-gauge needle during EUS-FNA procedures.
EUS-FNA plus Cellvizio can help in clinical practice by:
- Improving the characterization for indeterminate cysts3, 6, 7
- Confirming the EUS impression, when cytological confirmation is missing3, 6, 7
- Providing high specificity and inter and intraobserver agreement3
- Reducing the rate of surgery4
