How is the workflow for CT navigation different from fluoroscopy

How is the workflow for CT navigation different from other imaging modalities such as fluoroscopy?

CT navigation in spinal surgery is a high-demand technologic advancement for the delivery of instrumentation. It relies heavily on input from multiple disciplines (radiology, anesthesia and nursing staff, surgical technologists, navigation technologists) to successfully implement image guidance in the operative room. Organization and management of this multidisciplinary team is more complex compared to use of fluoroscopy. Coordination of the movement of each individual during navigation, and emphasis of the importance of execution of each team member’s role, is critical to maintaining a smooth workflow that is free of disruptions.
