PURPOSE To preoperatively evaluate anatomic variations of the bronchial arteries by obtaining three-dimensional (3D) simulations with multidetector computed tomography (CT). MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was approved by the institutional review board, and written informed consent was obtained from all participants. Seventy-three consecutive patients with esophageal cancer underwent dynamic multidetector CT. The data were used to generate 3D simulations of the thoracic cavity. These images… CONTINUE READING
