Body Vision Medical Signs Exclusive Distribution Agreement with AMCO Incorporated

Distribution Agreement Brings LungVision® AI-Powered Image Guidance to Japan

CAMPBELL, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#AdvancedBronchoscopy--Body Vision Medical, a leader in AI-driven, intraoperative imaging, announced today it has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with AMCO Incorporated to expand access of its cutting-edge LungVision® real-time, intraoperative CT imaging system to Japan.

LungVision® uses artificial intelligence (AI) to transform any C-arm fluoroscope into an intraoperative tomographic imaging system with advanced navigation capabilities. LungVision’s real-time imaging gives bronchoscopists the confidence to biopsy from small pulmonary lesions with greater speed and precision, maximizing the likelihood for earlier-stage cancer detection and improved lung cancer survival.

“Japan has the highest lung cancer screening adoption rate of any country in the world,” said Jon Ulvestad, VP of Sales and Market Development at Body Vision Medical. “This translates into a need to definitively diagnose a large number of patients identified with suspicious pulmonary nodules. LungVision® provides the Japanese healthcare system a clinically- and cost-effective means to diagnose lung cancer patients at scale and this agreement with AMCO is a key milestone in giving Japanese clinicians and patients access to the latest in lung cancer diagnostics technology.”
