Abstract

The ability to attain high-definition imaging for preoperative planning, intraoperative execution, and postoperative evaluation is instrumental in surgical practice. Hybrid room computed tomography (CT) allows for faster, less invasive diagnostic and therapeutic options for patients. We present our diagnostic workup and therapeutic intervention with hybrid CT imaging in a 71-year-old female with a growing lung nodule after previous lobectomy for lung cancer.
