Argus 4D Enables Visualization, Analysis of Heart Function

 

February 25, 2009

Siemens Healthcare’s Argus 4D VF for 4D visualization of cardiac function. This software enables the visualization and analysis of heart function disorders through the dynamic volume display of the beating heart. With this flexible tool, the cardiac function can be calculated from almost any combination of short-axis and long-axis images. As a new and unique feature, the mitral valve motion is included in the analysis. Thus, compared to conventional approaches, Argus 4D VF allows function analyses with significantly higher accuracy, according to Siemens.
