A solution for structural heart disease interventions

whitePaper | December 1, 2014

Structural heart disease interventions represent a new branch of percutaneous treatments covering a wide range of diseases that were previously treated surgically or simply not addressed. Challenge In structural heart disease interventions fluoroscopy alone provides clear visualization of catheters and devices but leads to poor visualization of the anatomical structure. Continuous soft tissue imaging is required, which has made echocardiography an essential tool for these procedures. Two-dimensional (2D) transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is limited in its ability to detect the position of a device or catheter relative to its surrounding structures because it requires having to mentally reconstruct the anatomical setting. Currently 3D echocardiography complements 2D imaging in many centers; however image quality is sometimes limited. Ideally, optimized image guidance for structural heart disease interventions could merge high-quality 3D presentation of cardiac anatomical information with device and catheter visualization on fluoroscopy, both in real time.
