Overview

Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy (ENB) procedures provide a minimally invasive approach to accessing difficult-to-reach areas of the lung. ENB procedures offer an opportunity to aid in the diagnosis of lung lesions with potentially better outcomes. Today, leaders in the healthcare industry recognize electromagnetic navigation as a cornerstone of lung cancer diagnostics and a recommended method of obtaining lung tissue biopsies from the peripheral regions.([FOOTNOTE=Rivera, M.

Features

Simple planning – superDimension™ planning software is designed to guide physicians through their planning process.

Target to trachea planning - Creating pathways beginning at the target lets physicians identify and select airways that are proximal to the lesion, then follow them back to the trachea.

Easy setup – With simple on-screen diagrams and instructions, superDimension™ procedure software guides users through every step of system setup.

Automatic registration – Automatic registration is a simple, three-step process to align patient anatomy with the 3D map. By conducting a quick lung survey using the superDimension™ locatable guide, registration can by verified before proceeding.

Customizable views – The software’s simplified user interface is based on physicians’ workflow. Users can configure screens to their individual preferences at each work stage.

Enhanced visualization – With a powerful tool for interpreting CT scan data, superDimension™ software generates 3D maps.

Biopsy guidance – Because physicians can capture, store and display each biopsy location, superDimension™ software makes it easy to navigate back to previous positions if additional samples are needed.

Advanced on-screen support – superDimension™ software includes on-screen help and troubleshooting. With a button that’s always present, users can just click to get the answers they need. The application will also automatically prompt you if there is a problem with the system.

Precise fiducial marker positioning – The superDimension™ navigation system includes fiducial marker placement technology that generates recommended positions after a survey around the target. The positions are calculated to provide geometric separation around the target in smaller airways to minimize migration.

Indications for Use

The superDimension™ navigation system is indicated for displaying images of the tracheobronchial tree to aid the physician in guiding endoscopic tools or catheters in the pulmonary tract and to enable marker placement within soft lung tissue. It does not make a diagnosis and is not an endoscopic tool. Not for pediatric use.

See product labeling for relevant contraindications, warnings and precautions. Federal law (USA) restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
