Flenaugh EL, Mohammed KH. Initial experience using 4D electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy system with tip tracked instruments for localization of peripheral lung nodules. The Internet Journal of Pulmonary Medicine. 2016. Vol 18. Number 1.
Measure diagnostic yield using Veran’s 4D EMN and determine system efficacy.
diagnostic yield using SPiN®
“Without using 4D respiratory tracking, the variation in inspiration/expiration would have contributed to completely missing the target. While significant movement relative to the size of the nodules being targeted was measured between the INSP and EXP state, we found the SPiNDrive system to be very accurate in compensating for this motion.”
