Veran Delivery System Targets Lung Cancer


March 11, 2009 - Veran Medical Technologies, a developer of medical devices that enable earlier detection and minimally invasive treatment of lung cancer, will features its IG4 Plug-N-Play Delivery System at SIR 2009.

The IG4 Plug-N-Play Delivery System uses electromagnetic navigation and respiratory tracking to enable physicians to target small lesions. The image-guided medical therapy delivery system enables accurate and efficient targeting of very small lesions in the lungs. The technology is unique, as it is based on a 4D registration principle. Unlike traditional navigation technologies, by encouraging the movement of fiducials, the IG4 technology helps solve the problem of maintaining accurate localization for moving organs.

The Veran IG4 system enables clinicians to integrate rich and varied diagnostic information such as contrast enhanced, positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) at the point of care for therapy delivery.
