To evaluate the role of the LungPoint VBN System in the bronchoscopic access to a target location.
The evaluation will explore:
- Ability of the system to guide a user to one or more target site(s)
- Ease of use of the system (assessment of the user interface)
- Incremental value brought by the use of the system to the successful completion of a case.
Multi-center, prospective, single-arm study. The Study will take the form of a User Evaluation. The Evaluation will require the user to perform several standardized functions (e.g. peripheral lesion sampling, lymph node sampling). In addition, users will be asked about other potential techniques that fall within the intended use of the device.
The evaluation will be conducted in patients who are indicated for procedures that fall within the intended use of the device. Examples of such patients include:
- Patients who have been recommended for bronchoscopy for the purpose of obtaining a biopsy sample of a central or peripheral pulmonary lesion.
- Patients who have been recommended for bronchoscopy for the purpose of diagnosing mediastinal or hilar lymphadenopathy.
- Patients who have been recommended for bronchoscopy for the purpose of lung fiducial placement.

This is a prospective, randomised clinical outcomes study comparing the Signature Personalised Patient Care, Conventional Total Knee Arthroplasty and Computer Assisted Navigation, using Va...
The functional flexion axis of the knee can be established by computer-assisted intra-operative data, through range of motion techniques, not specific landmarks such as epicondyles.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether intraoperative computer-assisted navigation improves prosthetic implant positioning as compared to conventional intraoperatve instrumentat...
Many studies show that computer-assisted navigation system have been available to treat zygomatic-complex fractures. However, most of them are case reports or clinical experiences lacking ...
A new solution for guiding the surgeon in robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP) is image-guided navigation using transrectal ultrasound (TRUS). A TRUS-guided intraoperat...
Diagnosis of small pulmonary lesions by transbronchial lung biopsy with radial endobronchial ultrasound and virtual bronchoscopic navigation versus CT-guided transthoracic needle biopsy: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
Advances in bronchoscopy and CT-guided lung biopsy have improved the evaluation of small pulmonary lesions (PLs), leading to an increase in preoperative histological diagnosis. We aimed to evaluate th...
To provide an overview of the developments made for virtual- and augmented-reality navigation procedures in urological interventions/surgery.
The description of precise intrabronchial positions for the sampling of mediastinal-hilar lymph nodes is critical to successfully perform conventional transbronchial needle aspiration. Previously publ...
The development of postoperative bronchopleural fistula (BPF) remains a challenge in thoracic surgery. We herein report a case of BPF successfully treated with endoscopic bronchial occlusion under com...
Virtual reality (VR) simulation is an effective and safe method of teaching bronchoscopic skills. Few VR bronchoscopy simulators exist; all are expensive. The present study aimed to describe the desig...
Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Computer systems or networks designed to provide radiographic interpretive information.
Computer-assisted study of methods for obtaining useful quantitative solutions to problems that have been expressed mathematically.
Computer-assisted processing of electric, ultrasonic, or electronic signals to interpret function and activity.
