Navigation Sciences raises $3M for surgical system that treats lung cancer

Navigation Sciences announced today that it closed the initial $3 million tranche of a $5 million Series B financing round.

Brookline, Massachusetts-based Navigation Sciences develops the NaviSci system for use in precision surgery for early-stage lung cancer.
