Indocyanine green (ICG) dye injection can be used to help identify nodules deep in the lung that would have been otherwise difficult to find. A surgeon can inject the ICG dye in the operating room using navigational bronchoscopy. This video presents the case of a 45-year-old female patient who underwent a robotic assisted wedge resection for a pulmonary nodule, using intraoperative navigational bronchoscopy and ICG tattoo of the nodule.
