We describe the benefits of a three-dimensional multidetector computed tomography angiography and the bronchography-guided segmentectomy technique. Preoperative determination of the anatomical intersegmental plane is possible by visualizing the segmental branches of the pulmonary veins and segmental bronchi. This new technique may be useful in segmentectomy of the lung.
