Abstract

Navigational bronchoscopy provides a three-dimensional virtual "roadmap" that enables a physician to maneuver through multiple branches of the bronchial tree to reach targeted lesions in distal regions of the lung. It is designed to be used with a standard bronchoscope to facilitate obtaining tissue samples and for placing radiosurgical or dye markers. This article overviews this technology and the Current Procedural Terminology codes that have been created for its use.
