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)
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)
