In patients that have small tumors we can also perform, not a complete lobectomy but a segment of resection of the lung. With the help of Synapse 3D, we can have critical information about where the vessels are going, like the pulmonary artery branches or the branches of the vein, and we can exactly plan the operation in order to find out which segment should be resected. We can also tell if there is only one segment or more than one segment that needs to be resected. So these are just some of the many valuable uses of SYNAPSE 3D.
