Integrated co-registration of IVUS images with angiography
IVUSmap, an optional application integrated in the new Artis Q and Artis Q.zen systems, maps each frame of an IVUS pullback to its corresponding position within the coronary tree of a reference angiographic image. After co-registration, the angiographic roadmap image is linked side-by-side with the corresponding IVUS images.
This allows to navigate in either modality while keeping track of the corresponding location. As a consequence, the localization of lumen and wall structure is readily available to support the diagnosis.
IVUSmap is the result of continued development efforts between Siemens and Volcano Corporation to bring co-registration to interventional cardiology. IVUSmap can be fully executed from the tableside control. The tight integration with Volcano’s s5i IVUS console ensures a seamless workflow including shared patient registration and automatic image data transfer.
