Abstract: 

Background: Computed tomography (CT)-guided biopsy of the lung is a well-established method of diagnosis. The aim of this study is to determine the success rate of fluoroscopic CT (FCT) and conventional CT (CCT) in needle navigation biopsies from the lung lesions.
Materials and Methods: A total of 78 patients were prospectively enrolled to receive CT-guided biopsy with (group I, n=23) or without (group II, n=55) fluoroscopic guidance. The mean age was 13.5, and the outcome measurements were success and complication rate of procedure.
Results: The success rate was increased in the FCT group (87%) as compared with that of CCT group (80%, p=0.012). The complications (pneumothorax and bleeding) were not significantly different between the two groups (0 versus 8 cases, p=0.097).
Conclusion: The obtained results revealed that the FCT facilitates the CT-guided biopsy procedures and it will reduce the complications by allowing real-time visualization of the needle tip from skin entrance to the target point.
