Auris Health Announces Results from Study of Monarch™ Platform at CHEST 2018 Late-Breaking Abstracts

Auris Health, Inc. announced the results of the Nodule Access study at the CHEST 2018 Annual Meeting in San Antonio. Alexander C. Chen, M.D., Director of Interventional Pulmonology at Washington University of St. Louis, shared the findings during the Late-Breaking Abstract session.

During the study, eight investigators performed robotic-assisted bronchoscopy procedure using the Monarch Platform on a cadaveric model designed to mimic a real-life bronchoscopy procedure. Sixty-seven simulated tumor targets 1-3cm in size, were prepared in eight human cadaveric lungs. The tissue acquired during the bronchoscopy was evaluated and correctly identified as the implanted target in 97% of cases.
