Robotic Lung Cancer Diagnosis

Intuitive ION System

The state of the art lung cancer diagnosis

Northwestern Medicine is the first pulmonary program in Illinois to offer a new, robotic-assisted bronchoscopy platform that diagnoses lung cancer sooner and with greater accuracy. This unique lung biopsy method is currently offered at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

This new platform called Ion, uses an ultra-thin, highly maneuverable robotic catheter to access parts of the lung previously unreachable by standard biopsy — even nodules outside airways. More reach means more accuracy and a faster diagnosis, which means earlier intervention and treatment.

For more information or to see if you qualify for ION screening and diagnosis please call 312.695.3800 today.

If you currently have a lung cancer diagnosis and are looking for treatment, please call the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University at Northwestern Memorial Hospital at 866.LURIE.CC (587.4322).
