Brief Summary in Scientific Language

The LungPoint ATV System is an image-guided navigation system used to access tissue samples
in the lungs. This feasibility study is being conducted to assess the ability of the
investigator to access and sample tissue using this system in patients undergoing lobectomy
or pneumonectomy. Navigation to and sampling of the patient's lung cancer tumor is
conducted immediately prior to the scheduled lobectomy or pneumonectomy.

Note: This study was conducted as a single-center feasibility clinical trial to determine
the feasibility of this device. The primary outcome measures related only to feasibility
and not to health outcomes. Therefore it was not registered on prior to
the start of enrollment. Subsequently, it was determined that the results were compelling
and therefore it was registered to facilitate publication.

Primary Outcome

- Ability to complete procedure using system; time frame: At completion of procedure; The proportion of cases (attempted nodules) in which the procedure could be substantially completed by the investigator divided by the number of cases (nodules) for which at least one attempt to pass any LungPoint study device into the bronchoscope was made.

start of 1:1-Block secondary endpoint

Secondary Outcome

- Proportion of nodules biopsied yielding tissue sufficient for diagnosis; time frame: Upon asssessment of histology of tissue sample taken during procedure; The number of nodules with at least one biopsy sufficient for a tissue diagnosis divided by the number of nodules sampled using the LungPoint ATV system.
- Number of significant adverse events; time frame: Up through lobectomy of lobe at end of procedure; The number of SAEs rated as probably or definitely related to the study device and/or procedure divided by the number of patients in whom an attempt at study device use was made. The adverse events specifically tracked in this study are hemoptysis and pneumothorax.

test prior to the procedure or the intent to become pregnant during the study.
