Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Computed tomography fluoroscopy (CTF) was first introduced into clinical practice in Japan in 1993 and in the United States in 1995, yet it has been used predominantly at large academic hospitals. Early literature on CTF is composed primarily of abstracts that detail anecdotal experiences and that have been presented at major meetings. Scientific papers evaluating CTF in clinical practice have been introduced in scientific journals only recently. This article reviews the literature for CTF with specific emphasis on clinical techniques, applications, and results. It is the goal of the author to provide the reader with a basic working knowledge of how to perform CTF-guided procedures and how to integrate CTF into clinical practice.
