Trial Conditions
  • Pulmonary Coin Lesion
What is the purpose of this trial?

The objective of the prospective, multi-center study is to evaluate the ease of use and effectiveness of the SPiN Drive Electromagnetic (EM) Tip Tracked Steerable Devices as a method of sampling subsegmental, less than 3.0 cm, lung lesions through the airway, and beyond the bronchus. Measures of diagnostic yield will be compared to the diagnostic yield of similar published historical controls using conventional bronchoscopy.
