Summary

Physicians currently have difficulty getting a biopsy of lung spots that are far from the center of the lung. The bronchoscopes that are currently used to reach these spots are sometimes difficult to maneuver and are unable to reach these spots. This study will test the performance of a new robotic bronchoscope that uses navigation software to find the distant spots in the lung so physicians can successfully get a biopsy.
