We are developing an innovative bronchoscopy simulator in collaboratiin with the RBWH thoracic department.
The Australian e-Health Research Centre is collaborating with the RBWH thoracic department to develop an innovative bronchoscopy simulator.
The aim is to increase the skill level of trainee doctors and surgeons who undertake thoracic procedures with a bronchoscope.
Recent developments in novel imaging techniques applied in bronchoscopy are being pioneered by surgeons in the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital but existing simulators do not incorporate these new techniques in their training programmes.

Standard bronchoscopy is a challenging intervention and very difficult to master due to the anatomical variability of the tree structures in the lung. Accurate identification of the site of potential lesions is extremely important for follow-up investigations.
