PurposeTo determine risk factors for systemic air embolism by percutaneous computed tomography (CT)-guided lung biopsy.MethodsThis case-control study used data from 2216 percutaneous lung biopsy procedures performed over 11 years at 12 institutions in Japan. Systemic air embolism was identified by retrospective review of CT images obtained during and immediately after the procedures. To fulfill our objective, multiple variables were compared between cases and controls with univariate analyses… CONTINUE READING
