Reduction of patient radiation dose during percutaneous CT vertebroplasty: Impact of a new computer-assisted navigation (CAN) system
Assessment of the CT-Navigation™ system impact on patient radiation dose during percutaneous CT vertebroplasty.
Reduction of radiation dose by a 3.2 factor with the use of CT-Navigation™ when compared with the conventional CT procedure.
50% reduction of the procedure duration with the use of CT-Navigation™ when compared with the conventional CT procedure.
In experienced hands, use of a CT-Navigation™ system significantly reduced both patient radiation dose and procedure duration when compared to conventional CT guided percutaneous vertebroplasty.
