IMAGE GUIDANCE FOR BRONCHOSCOPY AND LUNG SURGERY
With growing numbers of small lung nodules discovered as incidental findings and in lung cancer screening, bronchoscopists and surgeons are increasing asked to biopsy and treat smaller nodules. Current methods carry significant risks and minimally-invasive surgery for them is difficult. The hybrid theatre allows bronchoscopists and surgeons to reach, diagnose and treat these nodules with ease and confidence, both improving the accuracy and reducing the morbidity of these procedures.
