The Monarch™ Platform is innovative technology that provides a unique approach for visualizing and accessing small, peripheral nodules in hard-to-reach areas of the lung, enabling our doctors to make a more accurate diagnosis of possible early stage lung cancer.
X-rays and CT scans sometimes identify the presence of nodules in the lungs. Most of these nodules are benign but a few may be cancerous. Sometimes these nodules are very small, are located in a hard-to-reach area of the lung, and are difficult to reach with traditional bronchoscopies. In these cases, a robotic-assisted bronchoscopy is recommended.
