CT TAVI Planning
A non-invasive post-processing application that provides semi-automatic measurements of the aorta and aortic valve that are useful for pre-TAVI planning. It also provides model-based segmentation of the aortic valve with automatic calcium segmentation and improved landmark detection, ascending aorta and left ventricle, semiautomated detection of the coronary ostia, semiautomated planes detection and dimensions measurements of the aortic annulus, left ventricular outflow tract, sinotubular junction, sinus of valsalva, ascending aorta and distance to coronary ostia for TAVI-device sizing. This application also provides a reasonable starting angle of the C-arm for device deployment, which allows for less time used for the TAVI procedure itself performed in the catheterization laboratory or hybrid operating room. New enhancements speed time to results by incorporating vascular entry steps.
