Patient story: Cellvizio was used to speed up diagnosis and to enable faster treatment and care

Ben Carlsen is 36 years old and has been living with lung cancer for the last six months. He was referred to Dr. Aki at the Lung Center at Valley View where he experienced technology that combines detection, diagnosis and staging in one procedure. A GPS-like technology was used to locate, test and detect a lesion in the lung, and Cellvizio Confocal Endomicroscopy enabled his pulmonologist to see individual cells in the farthest reaches of his lungs.
