Robotic technology for extended reach
Join correspondent Olga Villaverde as she explores innovations in the early detection of lung cancer. We’ll learn more about the Ion endoluminal system, a robotic-assisted platform for minimally-invasive biopsy in the lung. Also, an incidental finding on a chest x-ray takes Lee on an unexpected journey.

Important safety information
Risks associated with bronchoscopy through an endotracheal tube and under general anesthesia are infrequent and typically minor and may include but are not limited to: sore throat, hoarseness, respiratory complications including dyspnea or hypoxemia, airway injury, bronchospasm, laryngospasm, fever, hemoptysis, chest or lung infection including pneumonia, lung abscess or an adverse reaction to anesthesia. Although rare, the following complications may also occur: bleeding, pneumothorax (collapsed lung), cardiac-related complications, respiratory failure, air embolism, or death. As with other medical procedures, there may be additional risks associated with the use of general anesthesia and/or endotracheal intubation which are not listed above; you should consult a health care professional regarding these and other potential risks.
