CT in operating room improves lung cancer removal
CT in operating room improves lung cancer removal (May 1, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Boston - A new report presented at the American Association for Thoracic Surgery finds that CT imaging in the operating room enables more precise removal of small lung nodules. Researchers studied 20 patients who had very small pulmonary nodules in the outer half of their lung. By using a CT scanner during the operation, surgeons were better able to precisely mark these tumours and then remove them, allowing for minimal removal of participants' healthy tissue.
