It is known that a reduction of the field-of-view in 3-D X-ray imaging is proportional to a reduction in radiation dose. The resulting truncation, however, is incompatible with conventional reconstruction algorithms. Recently, a novel method for region of interest reconstruction that uses neither prior knowledge nor extrapolation has been published, named(More)
OBJECTIVE One limitation of the use of robotic catheters is the lack of real-time three-dimensional (3D) localization and position updating: they are still navigated based on two-dimensional (2D) X-ray fluoroscopic projection images. Our goal was to evaluate whether incorporating an electromagnetic (EM) sensor on a robotic catheter tip could improve(More)
We herein present a rare case of bilateral positional vertebrobasilar insufficiency secondary to mechanical obstruction of the V2 segment of the vertebral artery in a 71-year-old patient presenting with vertigo, occipital headache, tremors and respiratory irregularities. Two-dimensional digital subtraction angiography is the traditional diagnostic imaging(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Successful endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms requires understanding the exact relationship of implanted devices to the aneurysm, parent artery, and other branch vessels during the treatment. Intraprocedural C-arm CT imaging has been shown to provide such information. However, its repeated use is limited due to(More)
BACKGROUND Since its introduction, digital subtraction angiography has been considered the gold standard in diagnostic imaging for neurovascular disease. Modern post-processing techniques have made angiography even more informative to the cerebrovascular neurosurgeon or neurointerventionalist. Open neurosurgical procedures such as aneurysm clipping,(More)
In this clinical report, we examined a single-center experience by using the Solitaire FR Revascularization Device in the treatment of acute ischemic stroke in which there was poor initial visualization of the occluded arterial branches by using biplanar cerebral angiography. In all cases, adjunctive C-arm CT was used during the deployment of the(More)
Purpose: A standard imaging protocol for monitoring and predicting the response to Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT) has not been established yet. The aim of this study was to evaluate the response to PRRT by quantitative SPECT-CT and assess the value of SPECT-CT over routine planar scintigraphy in predicting the outcome of PRRT. Methods: 32(More)
