The NvisionVLE® Imaging System, with Real-time Targeting™, as part of the VLE procedure (Volumetric Laser Endomicroscopy), uses an optical signal acquisition and processing method to create high-resolution cross-sectional images and mark tissues—letting you evaluate 100% of the tissue in a 6cm scan in real-time. 3mm deep. At a resolution of 7 microns. All so you can provide a more thorough evaluation – potentially leading to improved biopsy targeting for diagnosis by histopathology, and more complete information to determine the best treatment for your patients.
The NvisionVLE Imaging System is indicated for use as an imaging tool in the evaluation of human tissue microstructure, including esophageal tissue microstructure, by providing two-dimensional, cross-sectional, real-time depth visualization and may be used to mark areas of tissue. The safety and effectiveness of this device for diagnostic analysis (i.e. differentiating normal versus specific abnormalities) in any tissue microstructure or specific disease has not been evaluated.
AThe NvisionVLE® Imaging System with Real-time Targeting™ allows clinicians to evaluate the esophageal tissue microstructure and mark areas of suspicion that are not visible with conventional imaging modalities, during a standard endoscopy procedure. These features help provide a more thorough evaluation—potentially leading to improved biopsy targeting for diagnosis and more effective therapeutic decisions for patients.
Explore the entire targeted segment of the esophagus in real time:
For close examination of a particular area of interest, either within the cross-sectional or longitudinal views, these windows provide a zoomed-in view.
Examine the plane of the esophagus perpendicular to its cross-section:
As you manipulate the cross-sectional or longitudinal views on the NvisionVLE touch-screen monitor or hand-controller, each of the corresponding views update smoothly and in real time.
