Abstract

C-arm cone-beam computed tomography (CT) with a flat-panel detector represents the next generation of imaging technology available in the interventional radiology suite and is predicted to be the platform for many of the three-dimensional (3D) roadmapping and navigational tools that will emerge in parallel with its integration. The combination of current and unappreciated capabilities may be the foundation on which improvements in both safety and effectiveness of complex vascular and nonvascular interventional procedures become possible. These improvements include multiplanar soft tissue imaging, enhanced pretreatment target lesion roadmapping and guidance, and the ability for immediate multiplanar posttreatment assessment. These key features alone may translate to a reduction in the use of iodinated contrast media, a decrease in the radiation dose to the patient and operator, and an increase in the therapeutic index (increase in the safety-vs-benefit ratio). In routine practice, imaging information obtained with C-arm cone-beam CT provides a subjective level of confidence factor to the operator that has not yet been thoroughly quantified.
