Auris Health, based in Redwood City, California, is showing off its brand new Monarch Platform for robotic, accurate endoscopic navigation through the lungs. The Monarch helps physicians to reach more places within the lungs and find smaller lesions, potentially providing a more accurate diagnosis of the presence of lung cancer. The potential for the technology includes delivery of therapy as well as aiding with diagnosis.
The flexible, motor powered endoscope is controlled by a joystick that anyone with experience playing console video games should be immediately comfortable with. Imagery from previously gathered CT scans is combined with video from the endoscope to give the physician a contextual understanding of where the tip of the device is located.
The company believes that being able to reach into the periphery of the lungs can help to spot nodules that are typically missed these days.
Here’s a promo video for the Monarch system followed by a silent animation showing how it works:
