Since the introduction of 3-D rotational X-ray imaging, protocols for 3-D rotational coronary artery imaging have become widely available in routine clinical practice. Intra-procedural cardiac imaging in a computed tomography (CT)-like fashion has been particularly compelling due to the reduction of clinical overhead and ability to characterize anatomy at(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE With modern imaging techniques, visualization of neurovascular stents remains challenging. We present a method for contrast-enhanced C-arm CBCT that provides detailed and simultaneous visualization of neurovascular stents and host arteries. MATERIALS AND METHODS CBCT was performed with a rotational angiography system by acquiring(More)

Minimally invasive interventions are often performed under fluoroscopic guidance. Drawbacks of fluoroscopic guidance are the fact that the presented images are 2D projections and that both the patient and the clinician are exposed to radiation. Image-guided navigation using pre-interventionally acquired 3D MR or CT data is an alternative. However, this(More)
The advent of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) in the angiography suite has been revolutionary in interventional radiology. CBCT offers 3 dimensional (3D) diagnostic imaging in the interventional suite and can enhance minimally-invasive therapy beyond the limitations of 2D angiography alone. The role of CBCT has been recognized in transarterial(More)
C-arm based tomographic 3D imaging is applied in an increasing number of minimal invasive procedures. Due to the limited acquisition speed for a complete projection data set required for tomographic reconstruction, breathing motion is a potential source of artifacts. This is the case for patients who cannot comply breathing commands (e.g. due to(More)
