Endoscopy in the CT Scanner: a Multidisciplinary Approach to Difficult Cases

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Endoscopic interventions have been made safer with the use of fluoroscopy. This technique has limitations in patients with challenging anatomy. The combined use of endoscopy and CT fluoroscopy provides the added precision necessary to accomplish difficult interventions. In this video, we present two cases where endoscopy and CT fluoroscopy were used concurrently. While other publications have demonstrated the use of CT guidance to perform endoscopic interventions, this video also demonstrates the reverse—how endoscopic guidance can be used to make a CT-guided procedure possible. This video demonstrates the enhanced patient care possible when a multidisciplinary approach between interventional radiologists and surgeons is followed.
