LungPoint system results presented at American Thoracic Society 2010 International Conference

s just to get a diagnosis. Patients sometimes opted out of doing this and took a 'watch and wait' approach potentially missing an opportunity to catch cancer at an early stage."

Similar to navigation systems used when driving, the LungPoint system allows physicians to select destinations and see the best routes to get there. With this application the "destination" is a suspicious spot in the lung and the "streets" are the lung airways. Once the best possible route is selected, the LungPoint system presents an animation of what the journey through the airways will look like, providing physicians with a full visual guide to the biopsy destination.

The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania has also been using the LungPoint System. "The software brings better care to our patients because it allows us to shorten the amount of time it takes us to get to a lesion in the lung and complete a biopsy procedure," states Colin Gillespie, MD, pulmonologist at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. "Previously we may have spent time looking around the airway with a bronchoscope trying to find a lesion. Now, using this system, we can plan our path ahead of time and then have a real-time visual guide during the procedure. It takes the guess work out and lets us quickly reach our intended target."

Version 2.1 of the LungPoint System includes improvements that respond to customer feedback and make the system easier to use. The addition of airway measurement tools could help bronchoscopists better plan for a range of procedures. Enhanced distance measurements provide detailed insight into the intended biopsy target.

"The LungPoint system is intuitive and improvements in the new version make the navigation even more straightforward than before," states Dr. Yoneda. "One of the biggest advantages is the increased visual guidance. When we can see exactly where the bronchoscope is located, we can more easily biopsy lesions that woul
