Learning objectives: Utility of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) fusion techniques in Interventional Neuroradiology.
Background: A CBCT examination with a flat panel permits to obtain pseudo-CT images directly in the angiography suite during interventional procedures. When CBCT is performed during selective intravascular injection of diluted contrast medium, pseudo-angio CT images are obtained. Thanks to specific software, CB[...]
Findings and procedure details: Illustrative case 1: Double CBCT fusion technique - Cerebral Dural Arteriovenous Fistula (DAVF) A 60 years-old man was admitted to our hospital with a history of left hearing loss and tinnitus for over a year. A brain MRA was performed with evidence of a markedly enlarged vein of Galen and abnormal,[...]
Conclusion: Cone beam volume CT fusion techniques in Interventional Neuroradiology provide excellent images data set, which allows an accurate and detailed evaluation of procedural results and precise follow-up scheduling.
