Figure 1: Panel 1 - Operator positioning during procedure. Primary operator (A) handles the flexible bronchoscope passed through the rigid bronchoscope and performs the cryoprobe-transbronchial lung biopsy. Assisting operators (B and C) hold the rigid bronchoscope and Fogarty balloon, respectively. Panel 2 - The Fogarty balloon is positioned just proximal to the segmental openings from where cryoprobe-transbronchial lung biopsy will be performed. Panel 3 - Prebiopsy check to ensure Fogarty balloon is able to completely occlude the biopsied segments. Panel 4 - Cryoprobe tip with biopsy attached during the retrieval step
