Robotic Lung Biopsy
Robotic Precision: A New Era in Early Lung Cancer Diagnosis at Lee Health
In the battle against lung cancer, every moment counts. That's why Lee Health proudly brings you the groundbreaking Intuitive ION™ robotic-assisted bronchoscopy platform. For healthcare providers aiming for earlier and more precise diagnoses and patients desiring an answer through a minimally invasive procedure with quicker recovery times—the ION™ system is a collective leap forward in changing the landscape of early lung cancer diagnosis and treatment.
How Our Advanced System Works
The ION™ robot is an innovative tool that extends the capabilities of our skilled physicians. Operated from a console next to the patient, this technology uses sophisticated software to analyze the prior CT scan and plot a direct route to any suspicious tissue within the lungs. The result? Quicker procedures minimized discomfort and enhanced accuracy.
Why Robotic-Assisted Bronchoscopy?
Diagnosing lung cancer usually begins with a low-dose CT scan. When that scan reveals abnormal tissue growth, the next step is often a biopsy—a procedure that many find daunting. That's where the ION™ platform comes in. Our cutting-edge technology provides a minimally invasive approach with unparalleled precision, reducing the physical and emotional stress associated with traditional methods

Benefits of the ION™ robotic-assisted bronchoscopy vs. a CT-guided transthoracic lung biopsy
Unmatched Precision: The ION’s advanced algorithms deliver pinpoint accuracy, ensuring that we, the physicians, get right into the suspicious tissue safely and quickly.
Safe: The CT-guided transthoracic lung biopsy is associated with a 20% risk of complications, requiring hospitalization and a second invasive procedure to treat the complication. In contrast, the lung biopsy assisted by ION has a significantly lower complication rate of less than 2%.
Comfort and Quick Recovery: Experience minimal discomfort, and 99% of the patients go home the same day with our ION™ robotic-assisted bronchoscopy.
