Among the deadliest type of cancers, lung cancer faces several challenges in diagnosis and treatment: late diagnosis and misdiagnosis, inadequate tumor sampling, and resistance development to current therapies, among others. Together with advances in the understanding of molecular features, factors, and mechanisms involved in initiation and tumor progression, important improvements have occurred in diagnostics and therapeutics in the shape of advances in molecular genotyping, procedures for sampling, new potential, and less invasive sources of samples for the diagnosis and development

Advances in CT have enabled us to detect small lung cancers, which has changed the lung cancer surgery from lobectomy to a lesser lobar resection such as a segmentectomy or wedge resection. While wedge resection is a simple procedure, it has a higher risk of local recurrence of cancer than a lobectomy. On the other hand, segmentectomy is a well known curative surgery for small lung cancers. However, it is difficult to perform accurately because of its anatomical complexity, which
