Medgadget -- Here's a fact. Even the most experienced clinicians among us, whether thoracic surgeons, pulmonologists, intensivists or anesthesiologists, can get confused performing a bronchoscopy. That's why we like to move up and down through airways making sure we know where we are. And if we are not certain whether we are looking at carina or some other bifurcation, then things get progressively confusing in secondary airways and beyond. An Israeli startup superDimension, Ltd. wants to add navigation guidance to bronchoscopies and mediastinal biopsies with its system , called superDimension i•Logic™, that sports interesting software guidance and proprietary hardware.
