The 3D Imaging Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital provides 3D post-processing for medical and surgical specialties using protocols tailored to specific clinical applications.
Clinical application of 3D images in vascular imaging provides information that improves patient care:
- 3D renderings (multiplanar, oblique and curved reconstruction) help visualize CT and MR angiography for many vascular cases
- 3D views combined with quantitative measurements help accurately design aortic stent specifications
3D post-processing is available for applications including:
- CTA Chest
- CTA Abdomen
- CTA Runoff - Upper Extremities
- CTA Runoff - Lower Extremities
. CTA for Deep Inferior Epigastric Arteries
CTA for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
- CTV Runoff - Lower Extremities (May-Thurner Syndrome)
- CTA for Deep Epigastric Arteries
- MRA Chest
- MRA Abdomen
- MRA Pelvis
- MRA Pulmonary Vein
- MRA Runoff - Upper Extremities
- MRA Runoff - Lower Extremities
3D Applications: Vascular
Vascular: CT angiography (CTA) for aortic dissection
3D Volume rendered rotation to demonstrate an aortic dissection.
Vascular: Heart with Coronary Artery Bypass Grafts (CABG)
Coronary CT angiography with two grafts. Left internal mammary artery to the left anterior descending artery and saphenous vein graft to the right coronary artery.
Vascular: CT Pulmonary Veins with Stents
3D volume rendered lateral rotation of the pulmonary veins used in the treatment planning of atrial fibrillation.
