Technology in medicine, and especially, in the radiology department has advanced to ensure that radiographers, anesthesiologists, and surgeons work collaboratively to produce effective results. The components of a hybrid suite call for a suite that is large enough to accommodate the required equipment in reference to the kind of intervention technique.

The hybrid technology is a novice avenue to new diagnostic and treatment possibilities and has taken minimally invasive medical procedures to a new level. Huynh and Bechara (2013) note that hybrid interventions are integral to limb revascularization procedures, accounting for 5% to 21% of all these procedures. The hybrid equipment is flexible in that they can be integrated into the case of operative procedures as well as stand-alone components as shown in the CT section.
The hybrid technology in the operating room merges two distinct and different areas to yield effective results. The essence of this new technology in medicine is to substitute invasive procedures with minimally invasive ones based on empirical evidence on their efficacy and long-term benefits. Hudorovi? et al., (2010) note that these hybrid procedures are associated with reduced morbidity and mortality rates, and especially among the elderly as they are largely exposed to operative morbidity and mortality. In the recent years, the increase in the use of hybrid procedures has increased, and especially in reference to CT scans (Huynh & Bechara, 2013). There is no standard hybrid procedure but the more dynamic the operating room, the better its efficacy; but, there is a need for standard clinical guidelines for this hybrid technology.
There are various hybrid treatment procedures in light of the condition being treatment. However, this paper concentrates on the hybrid technologies that integrate the imaging component to ensure that definitive treatment is administered (Kataoka et al., 2016). In reference to available literature, the most common hybrid imaging techniques are those that employ computer tomography (CT) and angiography to view vascular anatomy, orthopedic trauma, and various kinds of tumors in view that cardiovascular, injuries, and cancers are among the most common conditions.
Literature Review
The hybrid treatment method composed of a combination of emergency surgery and interventional radiology(IVR) is perceived to be an ideal strategy for treating severely injured patients in the operating room because it reduces the time of resuscitation and treatment (Kataoka et al., 2016). Considering that the efficacy of this mode of treatment has not been adequately researched, Kataoka et al.,(2016) set out to determine the efficacy of IVR that includes a mobile digital subtraction angiography (DSA) combined the emergency surgery when administered to individuals with severe trauma. The research by Kataoka et al.,(2016) indicated that hybrid treatment is an effective type of treatment in increasing overall survival. In addition, this mode of treatment was found to be effective in reducing therapeutic damage and preserving organ functions as well as tissue planes. IVR aided in damage control because it controlled hemorrhage when definitive repair proved ineffective.
The application of transarterial embolization (TAE) in the control of arterial hemorrhage in tandem with damage control surgery was found to be effective inhemodynamically unstable patients who have gone through trauma. The surgical procedures used in this study included craniotomy, laparotomy, hemostasis, damage control surgery, and thoracotomy. However, this study was a retrospective one based on hospital records; hence, it is bound to have been affected by bias considering that the procedures had been conducted by different healthcare workers and some subjective elements to the provision of care cannot be accounted. This study is a good basis for future studies because it lacks the methodological rigor required when control and intervention groups are used. Thereby the essence of this particular study whose essence will be to use a randomized controlled trial to determine the causal effect of hybrid treatment as opposed to theadministration of IVR and surgery is isolation; even though they are both administered, their application does not render them as hybrid kind of treatment.
Interventional techniques used in hybrid operation suites for the purposes of enhancing imaging are discussed below (Hudorovi? et al., 2010; Rogostki et al., 2012; Crowhurst, Campbell, Whitby, & Pathmanathan, 2013; Tanaka et al., 2014; Tan et al., 2015).
