Recent clinical trials demonstrated the benefits of several guided-bronchoscopy technologies for the diagnosis of peripheral pulmonary lesions (PPLs). However, introduction of these technologies is expensive. Therefore, in clinical practice, these are unavailable in many hospitals. In contrast, virtual bronchoscopy (VB) using the computed tomography (CT) workstation can be made available immediately without additional cost as many hospitals already have the CT scan facility. However, the effectiveness of VB alone remains to be shown.

Accuracy of Quantification of Iodine and Hounsfield Unit Values on Virtual Monochromatic Imaging Using Dual-Energy Computed Tomography: Comparison of Dual-Layer Computed Tomography With Fast Kilovolt-Switching Computed Tomography.
The aim of the study was to compare the accuracy of quantification of iodine and Hounsfield unit (HU) values on virtual monochromatic imaging (VMI) using dual-layer computed tomography (DLCT) and fast...
The aim of this study was to investigate the quantitative and qualitative effects of virtual monoenergetic images (VMI) by spectral detector computed tomography (SDCT) on calcium blooming in coronary ...
Bronchoscopy is a safe technique for diagnosing peripheral pulmonary lesions (PPLs), and virtual bronchoscopic navigation (VBN) helps guide the bronchoscope to PPLs.
Dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) enables material decomposition and virtual monochromatic images by acquiring 2 different energy X-ray data sets. DECT can detect musculoskeletal pathologic condi...
One of the key steps in generating three-dimensional (3D) printed models in medicine is segmentation of radiologic imaging. The software tools used for segmentation may be automated, semi-automated, o...
This study will evaluate a new technique for examining the air passages of the lungs called "virtual bronchoscopy." It involves using computed tomography (CT) images of the chest to gener...

RATIONALE: Imaging procedures such as computed tomography may improve the ability to detect lung cancer earlier. PURPOSE: Screening and diagnostic study of computed tomography in women wh...
The primary aim of this study is to continue the investigation of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) for breast imaging already underway in the diagnostic setting by providing a compelli...
An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.
Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.
Computed tomography modalities which use a cone or pyramid-shaped beam of radiation.
Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.
Tomography using radioactive emissions from injected RADIONUCLIDES and computer ALGORITHMS to reconstruct an image.
Clinical trials are a set of procedures in medical research conducted to allow safety (or more specifically, information about adverse drug reactions and adverse effects of other treatments) and efficacy data to be collected for health interventions (e.g...
