Fusion Navigation Helps Navigate Structural Heart Cases

 

September 16, 2010

A new collection of software applications can be used with the Innova angiography system to better visualize transcatheter structural heart cases. The Innova EP Vision technology effectively fuses real-time 2-D X-ray images and 3-D cardiac models from multiple modalities, including X-ray, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Built upon Innova’s 3-D imaging platform and the Advantage Workstation VolumeShare multimodality, visualization and navigation workstation, Innova EP Vision for structural heart provides 3-D image overlay on fluoroscopy. It offers gated image stabilization, reducing image artifacts that can occur with patient movement, cardiac motion or breathing.

During procedures, the gated image stabilization improves visualization for better guidance of aortic valve deployment and other devices during complex structural heart interventions.
