Cone beam navigation bronchoscopy: the next frontier.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Navigation bronchoscopy has reached a new horizon in its evolution. Combining with real-time imaging modalities, such as cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and augmented fluoroscopy (AF), navigation success can finally be confirmed with high degree of accuracy in real-time. With utilization of this modality, additional clinical observations are being made to help address the CT-body divergence problem and further improve navigation accuracy. This review focuses on description of CBCT navigation technique, provide tips on addressing CT-Body divergence, and review evidence for CBCT applications in navigation bronchoscopy.
