Advancements in Screening and Treatment

The ION endoluminal system is a robotic-assisted platform for minimally invasive biopsy of the lung. The system features an ultra-thin, ultra-maneuverable catheter that allows navigation far into the periphery of the lung, providing stability and precision for biopsies. Watch the video below to learn more about how this cutting-edge technology eases the way for patients with lung nodules and how the doctor can perform a biopsy, get the pathology and remove the cancer during a single procedure.
