Optical biopsy with Cellvizio

Targeted biopsy with Cellvizio

Targeted biopsy with Cellvizio enables doctors to examine tissue at the microscopic level during an endoscopic examination facilitating traditional tissue sampling and even potentially reducing the need for a separate and time consuming pathological evaluation. a

A physician examines a patient’s esophageal tissue using Cellvizio targeted biopsy to check for Barrett’s Esophagus or dysplasia within Barrett’s Esophagus.b This way, trained physicians are able to make faster evaluations, which have the potential to result in quicker treatment of Barrett’s Esophagus and the problems associated with it.c

Get Answers Fast with Cellvizio

Cellvizio is an endomicroscopy system which generates targeted biopsies, providing physicians with microscopic images of tissue instantaneously and in a minimally invasive manner. Indicated for the identification of cells and vessels and their organization or architecture, this may facilitates better decision-making and improved patient management. 2,3,4,5

The benefits of this technology may include:

  • immediate tissue and cell characterization results
  • real-time decision making for your physician
  • improved therapeutic options for patients
  • faster intervention in Barrett’s Esophagus

How Cellvizio Works

The procedure combines advanced imaging technology, endoscopy and ergonomics for ease of use and patient comfort.  Using laser imaging technology, the images created by Cellvizio are produced by optically penetrating thin layers of tissue. There is no removal of tissue samples for a separate evaluation. These images provide physicians with information which can assist your physician.
