Allegro Diagnostics, Booth 1442
Allegro Diagnostics, which has completed two clinical trials in the genomic diagnosis of lung cancer, will launch its first product, the BronchoGen genomics test, later this year. BronchoGen uses RNA gene expression to help rule out lung cancer in patients who have undergone a nondiagnostic bronchoscopy. By using BronchoGen, patients with benign lesions will avoid unnecessary surgeries, averting complications and downstream medical costs.

ECO MEDICS, Booth 1045
With its Exhalyzer D and CLD 88 sp analyzers, Eco Medics will show attendees how to conduct exhaled NO and nasal NO tests, as well as how the nitrogen multiple breath washout (N2MBW) test is done. (Note: Eco Medics will not have gas cylinders in its booth to perform the actual test of N2MBW.) Attendees will also get a glimpse of the company’s latest software release, SpiroWare 3.1.

Polarean, Inc., Booth 1214 
Polarean, Inc., is opening new avenues for functional and physiological imaging with its hyperpolarized gas MRI technology. High-resolution, 3D images of inhaled noble gases using conventional MRI scanners illuminate the functioning lung on a regional basis. Through the addition of gas hyperpolarization equipment, MRI scanners can be extended to image pulmonary function.

PMD Healthcare, Booth 109
PMD Healthcare will present hands-on demonstrations of the Spiro PD personal spirometer. Spiro PD allows patients with asthma, COPD, CF, and lung transplants to monitor their lung function. Spiro PD tracks lung function trends on an ongoing basis and can alert patients of a decline in lung function before they feel symptoms. Ongoing tracking of trends may help patients anticipate and prevent exacerbations and reduce ER visits and hospital stays, better manage their disease, and increase communication with health care providers.

PneumaCare, Booth 142
The PneumaCare team will present its latest 3D software improvements. With a functioning scanner in the booth, the team will meet with clinical leaders in ventilation, thoracic surgery, and lung function to demonstrate the real-time measurement capabilities of the Thora-3DI. Learn how PneumaCare’s imaging technologies link patient chest wall movement to give clinicians a better understanding of their patients’ overall breathing.

VIDA Diagnostics, Booth 1419
VIDA introduces quantitative image analysis service for diagnosis and interventional treatment planning. As new therapeutic procedures emerge for pulmonary disease, the need for accessible and repeatable quantitative image analysis is essential for optimal patient selection, procedure planning, and monitoring disease progression. A Web-based service, VIDA provides comprehensive analysis of the parenchyma, airways, and fissures through clinically validated software and certified specialists.
