Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of our study was to introduce a method of effective localization of intraluminal small-bowel tumors. Our adapted technique, performed on two patients, consists of preoperative 3D distance measurement with MDCT data and intraoperative laparoscopic sonographic guidance. CONCLUSION. Combining distance measurement on reformatted MDCT images with intraoperative laparoscopic sonography results in accurate localization of small-bowel tumors. Use of this technique may allow minimally invasive laparoscopic treatment of patients.
