Diagnostic Technology

Veran’s SPiN Thoracic Navigation

Halifax Health is the first area hospital to offer the latest breakthrough technology in early stage lung cancer diagnostics. The Veran SPiN Thoracic Navigation System allows the physician to diagnose lung cancer at its earliest stage, reaching lesions to biopsy in areas of the lung that traditional diagnostic technology cannot reach. This helps a patient avoid what is called “watchful waiting” – waiting to see growth in the lesion or development of symptoms that are indicative of cancer.

Patient Benefits:

Potential earlier diagnosis of lung cancer allows for earlier treatment

Earlier treatment is proven to increase survival rates to as high as 92%

Less anxiety than “watchful waiting”

Allows for diagnosing and staging lung cancer in one outpatient procedure

Endobronchial Ultrasound
