OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to demonstrate the feasibility and efficacy of a novel simulation software called, virtual segmentectomy. METHODS We developed the segmentectomy simulation system, which was programmed to analyse the detailed 3D bronchovascular structure and to predict the appropriate segmental surface and surgical margin, based on lung modelling from CT images. RESULTS We have attempted this novel technique for 3 cases of pulmonary metastases and 1 case of multiple lung… CONTINUE READING
