Thoracic Surgery Hybrid OR Bootcamp


Image-guided minimally-invasive thoracic surgery is a promising technique to adequately determine pulmonary nodules. Screening campaigns drive the detection of small pulmonary nodules and the need to provide minimally invasive therapy options to improve the patients‘ outcome.

Siemens Healthineers in collaboration with SOMATEX Medical Technologies organize a training which provides basic knowledge and practical skills to perform computed tomography assisted thoracoscopic surgery (CATS) procedures in a real hybrid OR. The participants will learn how the procedure is performed. The SOMATEX® Lung Marker System will be presented.  

The SOMATEX® Lung Marker System is used for preoperative marking of non-palpable intrapulmonary nodules and ensures the targeted detection and identification for tissue resection.
