Chest infections can be life-threatening and tricky to treat. Now, new technology allows doctors to look inside someone’s lung and see what’s causing the infection.

Try your hand at being a doctor with Kev the manikin and the Proteus probe, and see how cutting-edge new chemistry shows us the deepest parts of our lungs for the first time.

Join scientists from the Proteus team who’ve created technology that could revolutionise the way critically ill patients are assessed and treated.
