Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
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.
