Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer related deaths worldwide and is often discovered later than is optimal for effective treatment. Inspira is focused on giving patients earlier diagnoses, at a time when their disease is more treatable. With the introduction of a new technology - the Monarch™ navigational bronchoscopy platform - Inspira does just that.
