Next steps in guidance system for safe biopsies in the peripheral airways
On November 7th and 8th of this year, the Mariana team held their half-year meeting of the Mariana project in Amsterdam. Mariana is an EU funded project with partners from Norway (Ceetron and SINTEF), Ireland (Smart Electronics and University College Cork), and the Netherlands (DEAM and Delft University of Technology), aiming to develop an image-guided flexible catheter system for safe lung biopsies. During this 2-day meeting the team discussed the status and next steps of the tracking, visualisation and navigation of our steerable catheter.
This system can be used in preventive research into the early stages of lung cancer.
