Image-guided catheter navigation in the outer airways
This project aims to create the most advanced image-guided flexible catheter platform on the market with immediate application to diagnosis and treatment of intraluminal disease such as lung cancer. The project combines high-precision electromagnetic tip tracking with novel instrument control and navigation. Image-guidance is by means of virtual, patient-registered navigation which can enable lower radiation exposure for the patient and lower healthcare costs to the hospital and patient.
