Lung Cancer Resection Evaluation
For borderline lung cancer resection patients, predicting post-operative lung function (PPO) is critical in determining surgical suitability; however, today’s methodologies are rudimentary (segment counting), expensive (vertilation perfusion scan), and carry imprecision of 18-21%1. VIDA|vision®‘s Lung Cancer Resection Evaluation report provides Quantitative CT (QCT) analysis at the segmental level to aid in FEV1PPO calculations2.
Use VIDA’s Lung Cancer Resection Evaluation report for:
- FEV1PPO: Use precise, quantitative CT data to assess FEV1PPO for pneumonectomy, lobectomy, or segmentectomy, along with underlying disease.
- Patient Communication: Use clear images and metrics with patients to more easily communicate disease state and treatment options.
- Boost your confidence with quantitative CT data that provides lung, lobar, and segment-level anatomical metrics.
- Increase efficiency with VIDA’s report, an all-in-one tool for pneumonectomy, lobectomy, or segmentectomy.
- Differentiate your practice with precise, repeatable QCT measurements.
- Save time and money by avoiding expensive ($3503) VQ scans.
- Improve communication with both colleagues and patients, using clear images and data to guide conversations and decisions.
Key Data Included
- Lung Density as measured by Low Attenuation (LAA)
- Disease Heterogeneity between lobes
- Regional and Global Volume
- Residual Lung Volume calculations
- Residual LAA %
