Novadaq launches PINPOINT: Company's first minimally invasive imaging system
Date:10/16/2007

System Recommended by the College of Chest Physicians for Lung Cancer

Treatment

TORONTO, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Novadaq(R) Technologies Inc. (TSX: NDQ), a developer of real-time medical imaging systems and image guided therapies for the operating room, today announced that it will launch the PINPOINT(TM) endoscopic imaging system at the Annual Meeting of American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), CHEST 2007, to be held in Chicago, IL, October 22nd - 25th, 2007. PINPOINT is based upon the endoscopic technology Novadaq acquired from Xillix Technologies Inc., and is designed to not only perform white light bronchoscopy, but also the more clinically relevant imaging commonly referred to as autofluorescence and narrow band imaging. Many studies have shown autofluorescence to be more effective in the detection and localization of central airway cancers than conventional white light bronchoscopy. The ACCP Evidence Based Practice Guidelines now recommend the use of autofluorescence bronchoscopy for the localization of certain lung cancers, for guiding endoluminal therapies, and as a surveillance tool in patients with pre-invasive disease.

"Autofluorescence bronchoscopy has definitely enhanced my ability to treat patients with lung cancer and I am glad to see that it is now being recommended by the ACCP," said Patrick Ross, Jr., M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor and Director of Thoracic Surgery at Ohio State University and Director of Thoracic Oncology at the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital. "Autofluorescence, compared to the gold standard white light bronchoscopy, provides a more detailed assessment of the patient's anatomy before pulmonary resection, a more accurate assessment for the presence of early lung cancers, and the ability to more precisely perform endoluminal therapies such as Photo Dynamic Therapy (PDT). Autofluorescence bronchoscopy has become firmly incorporated as a standard of care into our alg
