ST LOUIS, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Veran Medical Technologies announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Medtronic surrounding intellectual property.

Veran is currently marketing the IG4 - X-Thoracic Navigation System and intends to launch an IG4 - Endobronchial Navigation System, pending FDA Approval.
