superDimension Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance for Marker Delivery Kit
Date:4/4/2011

MINNEAPOLIS, April 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- superDimension, Ltd. ®, a privately-owned company that develops minimally invasive interventional pulmonology devices, today announced it has received FDA 510(k) clearance for the superDimension marker delivery kit. The kit is designed for use with the Company's Electromagnetic Navigational Bronchoscopy (ENB) system, which has treated a total of 20,000 total patients since commercial launch.

ENB is a minimally invasive procedure, where a catheter is inserted through the throat and uses Global Positioning System (GPS)-like technology to biopsy lung lesions and lymph nodes all in one outpatient procedure. ENB provides a three-dimensional virtual "roadmap" of the lungs that enables a physician to maneuver catheters through multiple branches of the bronchial tree, extending beyond the capabilities of the traditional bronchoscope to distant, previously inaccessible regions of the lungs.  If the targeted lesions are determined to be cancerous, the physician can use ENB to place radiosurgical markers in and around lung tumors (lesions) to help radiation oncologists treat patients with external beam radiation. These radiosurgical markers can also be enhanced with dye injected markers that facilitate a minimally invasive surgical procedure.  The outpatient procedure typical
