This is a demonstration of the the Philips TrueVue photo-realistic rendering and lighting source technology. This example highlights a transcatheter ASD closure with two Amplatzer occluders. The technology allows users to changing the lighting conditions to improve contrast. The light source can also be moved around to change the shadows and add more depth perception. The light source also can be pushed through the tissue to back light the anatomical structures, as shown in this example at the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) 2018 meeting. The backlighting confirms a gap at the top of the image where part of the septal defect remains exposed.
