The flexible bronchoscope, used both to directly visualize and biopsy lesions, is an important tool for diagnosing lung cancer [1]. Presented here is a conceptual design for a device that increases the depth to which the scope can be fed into the lungs. This allows doctors to find and accurately diagnose more cases of lung cancer first occurring deeper in the lungs.
