Feature Overview

  • Left and right atrial volumetry (disk-area summation and area length method)
  • Global and regional LV function analysis in SAO, LAO, bi- or triplanar
  • Polar maps offering customizable segmentation, including AHA segmentation model.
  • Volume-over-time curves for LV and RV, including peak filling and ejection rate
  • Two reference windows for immediate orientation and accurate basal slice definition, plus an on-demand window to view cine loops
  • Semiautomatic mitral valve plane correction
  • Semiautomatic tricuspid valve plane correction
  • Automatic and manual segmentation options for left and right ventricle
  • Optional in- or exclusion of trabeculae and papillary muscles in/from myocardial mass
  • Unique threshold based edge detection allows for quick and precise delineation of trabecular structures and/or papillary muscles
  • Enhanced accuracy due to an "Exclude Area" contour tool to eliminate the atrial cavity or intracardiac masses from volume calculation
  • Existing contours in short axis can be propagated to other series in the same orientation
  • 4D model of left and right ventricle (mesh or solid surface)

Benefits

  • Amount of information gained in a short period of time is substantial and accurate
  • Quantitative analysis and output of indexed values allow for guideline based, personalized patient management, and objective follow up
  • Provision of several analysis approaches (such as different orientations and anatomical models), as well as the ability to assess all four chambers makes the software suitable for multiple medical disciplines such as pediatric cardiology and/or electrophysiology
  • Automatic contour detection of left and right ventricle substantially speeds up analysis
  • Definition of mitral and tricuspid valve plane in 3 planes allows for a more accurate volume calculation
