The Pie Medical Imaging CAAS (Cardiovascular Angiography Analysis System) QCA 3D software offers automated detection and 3D analysis of single and bifurcated coronary arteries from angiographic X-ray projection images. Out-of-plane magnification and foreshortening errors are reportedly minimized by calculating true geometric shape in 3D space from two or more 2D X-ray projections. An interactive rendered view of the coronary artery in 3D helps to visualize and asses the geometry. CAAS QCA 3D offers improved analysis of difficult lesions and segment anatomy.

Philips and Microsoft have partnered to develop an augmented reality system to help imporve workflow and procedural navigation in the cath lab. Physicians wearing visors can view and interact with true 3-D holograms above the patient on the table and manipulate the image with voice and hand motion commands to avoid breaking the sterile field.
