Abstract

The idea of combining fluoroscopy and CT arose from the daily practice in diagnostic and interventional radiology. A Diasonics OEC high-performance image intensifier complete with a digital subtraction system was connected to a Siemens Somatom-DRH CT scanner to work in tandem. CT is used for a localization in-depth and fluoroscopy for the subsequent maneuvers within an organ or body compartment. With this combination, complex procedures such as transarterial portography, percutaneous embolizations, pain treatment and manipulation for catheterization of the bile ducts and urinary tract could be performed in one place and in one session. CTF is especially useful when patients should not be moved about from room to room or undergo an examination in several sessions, as it happens with children or critically ill or contagious patients.
