SAN CARLOS, Calif., June 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Innovator in medical robotics Medical Noah today revealed that the second public demonstration of its breakthrough Galaxy System will take place August 11-13 at the American Association for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology (AABIP) Annual Meeting in Nashville, TN.
The Galaxy System is the only fully integrated solution for navigated bronchoscopy, designed to dramatically improve localization accuracy and successful diagnosis of lung nodules using its proprietary TiLT+ Technology™.
The platform received high marks from pulmonologists and surgeons when it debuted in May at the American Thoracic Society (ATS 2022) annual meeting in San Francisco for features such as its TiLT+ Technology™ with integrated tomosynthesis and augmented fluoroscopy, a single-use, disposable bronchoscope, and the smallest lung navigation robot currently on the market.
“The risk of a missed diagnosis has always been a frustrating reality of peripheral bronchoscopy,” said D. Kyle Hogarth, MD, FCCP. “Integrated tomosynthesis was lacking in the first generation of both robotic platforms and the data demonstrates their limited inability to handle CT-body divergence. The galaxy has the potential to dramatically shift the balance when it comes to locating and confirming that our biopsy tools are in the lesion and bringing the therapeutic potential even closer to becoming a reality. The first experience with animal laboratories was very exciting and convincing.
“It was gratifying and a huge validation to see the response to Galaxy at ATS,” said Jian Zhang, PhD, Founder and CEO of Noah Medical. “We have been working full steam ahead to close the gaps in navigated bronchoscopy and are excited to continue the hard work needed to bring this innovative new robotic platform to market. Our mission remains to diagnose disease early and treat patients early with minimal hospital stays and without leaving scars.
Noah Medical plans to submit the Galaxy system for FDA approval later this calendar year. The platform will then be available for physician-only public demonstrations at the AABIP meeting in Nashville, TN, August 11-13. To schedule a demo appointment, please email [email protected]
