Airway Mapping

The Airway Mapping software application is designed for physicians performing challenging bronchoscopy procedures. It provides pre-procedural path planning and intra-procedural guidance (virtual bronchoscopy). Airway Mapping for VIDA|vision® gives physicians procedural control and confidence to reach peripheral lesions efficiently. When virtual bronchoscopy is paired with radial EBUS, diagnostic yields may be as high as 94.4%.1

Use VIDA’s Airway Mapping for:

Path Planning: Simple, highly-automated tools provide a 3D map with multiple path options.
Device Selection: Segment-by-segment airway measurements can be used to help determine scope and device reach ahead of time.
Virtual Bronchoscopy Guidance: Use VIDA|vision intra-procedure to guide your progress to the target. Pair with radial EBUS for real-time confirmation

Key Benefits

  • Boost confidence: VIDA|vision boosted procedural confidence in 79% of cases.2
  • Save time: VIDA|vision is highly automated and does not require time consuming patient registration steps, unlike alternative solutions, which have been found to add 12 minutes per procedure.3
  • Save money: $0/case in disposable device costs.
  • Save space: No additional tower in the bronchoscopy suite. Simply display the virtual bronchoscopy on a monitor.
