Overview

Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy (ENB) procedures are a minimally invasive approach that accesses difficult-to-reach areas of the lung, aiding in the diagnosis of lung disease and leading to earlier, personalized treatment, potentially saving lives. In addition, our technology used in the superDimension™ navigation system has been recognized as a remarkable way to maximize the possibilities that ENB procedures create, with 59 clinical studies completed to date, plus the largest ENB study yet currently underway: a global NAVIGATE clinical study.

Today, leaders in the healthcare industry recognize ENB as a recommended method of obtaining lung tissue biopsies from peripheral regions.([FOOTNOTE=Rivera M.P. et al. Chest 143;(5 Suppl): E142S–65S. 2013.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) Not all ENB systems are the same. The superDimension™ navigation system is a proven technology, with 92% of ENB procedures performed using our system, in over 800 leading medical facilities around the world. Our efforts in augmenting ENB were recognized in 2014 and 2015, when we were nominated as “Best Medical Technology” by the Galien Foundation.

We’ve taken you inside the lung. With fluoroscopic navigation technology*, you can look a little closer.

Our new software algorithms use multiple fluoroscopic images, providing:

  • Enhanced visualization of soft tissue objects like lung lesions([FOOTNOTE=Data on file.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • Accurate modeling of three-dimensional distances on two-dimensional images2,([FOOTNOTE=Data on file],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • Local registration to help compensate for local CT-to-body divergence – up to 3 cm2
  • Updated catheter position relative to nodule, once nodule location is confirmed3
  • Ability to visualize smaller nodules2

Features

Simple planning

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

  • Intuitive, simple workflow improves efficiency
  • Better 3D maps with more airways and options

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.

  • Create a more direct pathway to the target
  • Build pathways using the Airway Finder view or via traditional 2D views: Coronal, axial and sagittal

Easy setup

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

  • Increase efficiency
  • Reduce learning curves

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.

  • Navigate with confidence
  • Reach targets more accurately and efficiently

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.

  • Personalize the procedure to meet your needs
  • Only required information on screen at each stage minimizes visual confusion

Enhanced visualization

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

  • Enriched planning and navigation
  • Vibrant target alignment guidance

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.

  • Designed to help increase diagnostic yield
  • Can be used to illustrate location of fiducial marker placements

Advanced on-screen support

To make ENB procedures simpler, 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 new 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. It is not for pediatric use.
