Description

More precise.1 More flexible.1 For more answers.
Introducing the Ion™ endoluminal system, Intuitive's new robotic platform for minimally invasive biopsy in the peripheral lung. The system features an ultra-thin, ultra-maneuverable catheter that allows navigation far into the peripheral lung, and unprecedented stability enables the precision needed for biopsy.1 With Ion, you can advance your bronchoscopic capabilities.1

More reach1
Ion’s ultra-thin robotic catheter and advanced maneuverability allow navigation far into the peripheral lung.1 The 3.5mm outer-diameter catheter can pass through small and difficult-to-reach airways—around tight bends to reach all 18 segments of the lung.2 In addition, Ion’s peripheral vision probe provides direct vision during navigation.
