Interested in learning more. This PDF includes more details on the following protocols:
- Coronary Anatomy
- 4D Imaging
- Calcium Scoring
- MR Cardiac
- Advanced MR Cardiac
- Electrophysiology Planning (EP)
- Transaortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
In addition to evaluating the coronary arteries, functional analysis utilizes the gated cardiac study to produce 4D imaging of the beating heart. Quantification of stroke volume and ejection fraction in addition to wall motion and wall thickening provide a comprehensive overview of heart function.
Using the Medis & Circle 42 software, 3DR will quantify and send reports for MR Cardiac Functional Analysis. Technologists manually create contours using the ED/ES images from the cardiac scan to determine left and right ventricular ejection fraction. 3DR also performs Velocity Encoding phase contrast studies for the pulmonary artery and the aorta. Mean Flow Velocity and Flow Volume graphs are created.
