Accurate lesion targeting and diagnostic yield
Low diagnostic yield (~50%) by transbronchial biopsies can be a reality with standard approaches such as traditional fluoroscopic or ultrasound guidance.1,2 However, cone-beam CT can be used to improve rates of tool-in-lesion success and is associated with increase in diagnostic yield.1-6 In one study, tool-in-lesion confirmation was the strongest predictor of biopsy success.5 Now, cone-beam CT imaging can be done on a mobile platform. The Cios Spin Mobile C-arm with true cone-beam CT imaging capability can be used for intraprocedural verification of lesion and tool placement.1,2.6

Access to intraprocedural imaging
Many procedure rooms are small in size and with little or no access to the hybrid OR as a reality, options for flexible imaging can be important.7 With a footprint less than 20 square feet, the Cios Spin Mobile C-arm with cone-beam CT technology can be used in procedural rooms of virtually any size. With its compact mobile platform, it can be wheeled from room to room and used independently of hybrid OR scheduling.
Providers are faced with pressure to reduce spending while producing excellent patient outcomes.
Applications of cone-beam CT imaging in bronchoscopic interventions are at play from diagnosis through treatment. The Cios Spin offers technology that can be a true multidisciplinary imaging solution across service lines, which may help to expand return on investment through increased downstream referrals in the hospital system.
Cios Spin is a state-of-the-art 2D fluoroscopy machine that offers intra-procedural 3D CBCT imaging on a mobile platform. The mobile plug and play platform makes it possible to use straight away, without the time and costs associated with fixed room installation.8
