Three medical professional societies this week jointly released a new reporting system to standardize reporting of patients undergoing coronary computed tomography angiography (coronary CTA).
While 3-D printing has been around since the mid-1980s, there is accumulating evidence that this technology has the potential to revolutionize the understanding and management of heart conditions.
This image shows blood flow within the main pumping chambers – the ventricles – on both sides of the heart and the vessels leaving the heart. The blue flow is blood that needs oxygen and is travelling to the lungs. The red flow is blood that has been through the lungs and received oxygen. Victoria Stoll of the University of Oxford is using this type of imaging to look at the blood flow within the hearts of people with heart failure, whose hearts are not pumping effectively.
A 3-D view on the Echopixel system of a MitraClip implantation showing one clip deployed and a second about to be deployed. The images can be rotated on any axis and sliced through to show cross sectional views of the anatomy and the device in true 3-D with glasses. Echopixel is working toward a system that uses a special screen that will eliminate the need for glasses.
