Robotic bronchoscopy

Robotic bronchoscopy

Robotic bronchoscopy employs flexible robotics that enable new possibilities in endoscopy.

Karen L. Swanson, D.O., a pulmonologist at Mayo Clinic in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, shares the benefits of robotic bronchoscopy — better precision, better control in the airway, better anatomical alignment for the physician driving the scope, and better vision via optics displayed on a high-resolution monitor — and looks ahead to what implementation of this technology means for patients with lung cancer.
