Lung cancer is the deadliest of all cancers, and its incidence is on the rise. The importance of accurate and efficient lung biopsy without complications will only increase in importance g...
Currently chest X-ray (CXR) is the modality used to assess for pneumothorax after transthoracic lung biopsy at the Ottawa Hospital. Recently bedside Ultrasound (US) has become a useful rap...
Transthoracic lung biopsy (TLB) provides a histological diagnosis of nodule or lung mass. Pneumothorax is the main complication of TLB with an average of 20%. Many risk factors, whether cl...
BS-1053 A Prospective Randomized Multi-Centered Safety and Efficacy Evaluation of the Bio-Seal Biopsy Track Plug for Reducing Pneumothorax Rates Post Lung Biopsy Procedures
Bedside ultrasonography for detection of pneumothorax after transbronchial lung biopsies in lung transplant patients
Accurate diagnosis is essential for successful management of diffuse lung disease (DLD). Histopathology may sometimes be necessary. Surgical lung biopsy, the gold standard, carries a risk of morbidity...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether placing patients in an ipsilateral-dependent position during percutaneous CT-guided transthoracic biopsy reduces the pneumothorax rate.
Acupuncture, a component of traditional Chinese medicine, is also a well-known form of complementary and alternative medicine. Serious adverse events of acupuncture have been reported, including the a...
Thoracic endometriosis (TE) is one of the causes of secondary pneumothorax in women. According to the literature, 1 in 3 premenopausal women with pneumothorax can be diagnosed with 'catamenial pneumot...
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.
An imaging technique using compounds labelled with short-lived positron-emitting radionuclides (such as carbon-11, nitrogen-13, oxygen-15 and fluorine-18) to measure cell metabolism. It has been useful in study of soft tissues such as CANCER; CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM; and brain. SINGLE-PHOTON EMISSION-COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY is closely related to positron emission tomography, but uses isotopes with longer half-lives and resolution is lower.
Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.
