Newer technologies at St. Luke's Hospital have allowed us to diagnose patients at much earlier stages. We have started using electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy
which allows us to create 3-D virtual maps of the lungs and sample smaller nodules that we would have previously only been able to observe or would have required more invasive surgical biopsies. The same technology also allows us to help the radiation oncologist plan radiation treatment with the placement of markers around smaller tumors.
