Cardiac Imaging

The cardiac imaging channel includes the modalities of computed tomography (CT), cardiac ultrasound (echocardiography), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear imaging (PET and SPECT), and angiography. 

This is an example of artificial intelligence automation for cardiac MRI using an AI app from TeraRecon's Envoy AI marketplace. The GE MRI image has bee countoured, anatomy labeled and all quantification automated by the AI, greatly reducing post-processing time. See this and other new AI imaging technologies from the 2019 RSNA meeting.

The Philips Intellispace CV cardiovascular information system is an example of the newer generation cardiology PACS with structured reporting elements. Structured reporting helps set data up to it can be mined for clinical information latter, or used to train or be mined with artificial intelligence algorithms. Adoption of CPACS, cardiac PACS, required cardiology physician champions.

Figure 1 from the new ASE ischemia cardiac ultrasound imaging guidelines, showing a side-by-side views of apical 4- and 2-chamber images, at rest and immediately post-exercise. In the four-chamber view, the left ventricle is shown on the left-hand side of the screen. With exercise, the echocardiogram shows the LV cavity dilates (right quadrants) and there are regional wall motion abnormalities in the LAD territory.
