Hitesh Batra, M.D., (Associate Professor, Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine) and colleagues recently made an exciting advancement for bronchoscopy, using the Siemens Healthineers Cios Spin System. This makes UAB the first hospital in Alabama to offer real-time cone beam CT imaging during bronchoscopies. The system allows physicians to get live images during the procedure to more accurately determine where their instruments are located in relation to their target. The new technology paves the way for UAB to perform ablation of lung cancer via bronchoscopy in the near future.
