OBJECTIVE To retrospectively investigate the diagnostic value of pre-operative CT-features between pre/minimally invasive and invasive lesions in part-solid persistent pulmonary ground glass nodules in a Caucasian population. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective review of two pre-operative CTs for 31 nodules in 30 patients. There were 10 adenocarcinomas in(More)
PURPOSE To report the feasibility and the safety of a surgeon-controlled robotic endoscope holder in laparoscopic surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS From March 2010 to September 2010, 20 patients were enrolled prospectively to undergo a laparoscopic procedure using an innovative robotic endoscope holder. Two surgeons performed six adrenalectomies, four(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this phantom study was to assess a new real time electromagnetically-guided navigation system and compare it to standard computed tomography (CT) guidance. MATERIAL AND METHODS A prospective, randomized, comparative study was carried out over a two-day period. Operators without prior experience on the new navigation system(More)
PURPOSE To assess the accuracy and usability of an electromagnetic navigation system designed to assist Computed Tomography (CT) guided interventions. MATERIALS AND METHODS 120 patients requiring a percutaneous CT intervention (drainage, biopsy, tumor ablation, infiltration, sympathicolysis) were included in this prospective randomized trial. Nineteen(More)
OBJECTIVES The main goal of our phantom study was to compare the precision of adjustable periurethral balloons positioning depending whether the guidance was obtained by retrovision or rigid cystoscopy. MATERIAL AND METHODS A navigation guidance system was used to localize the introduction mandrel which was equipped with tracking targets. Two ideal sites(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether magnetic resonance (MR) tractography of facial nerve (VIIn) is useful to detect perineural invasion in case of parotid cancers. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty patients, aged 18 or over, were enrolled in this prospective study between December 2013 and March 2016 (IRB 5891), with a diagnosis of parotid tumors (15 malignant, 15(More)
BACKGROUND Interventional radiology includes a range of minimally invasive image-guided diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that have become routine clinical practice. Each procedure involves a percutaneous needle insertion, often guided using computed tomography (CT) because of its availability and usability. However, procedures remain complicated, in(More)
Evaluation of surgical technical abilities is a major issue in minimally invasive surgery. Devices such as training benches offer specific scores to evaluate surgeons but cannot transfer in the operating room (OR). A contrario, several scores measure performance in the OR, but have not been evaluated on training benches. Our aim was to demonstrate that the(More)
We conducted a retrospective study to identify morphological subgroups of patients referred for AD or aMCI and to seek for differences across neuropsychological performances. One hundred forty-five patients (mean age = 76.01, 88 women and 57 men) referred for AD, either at the stage of dementia or aMCI, were examined using structural MRI. Five observers(More)
