Accuracy and usefulness of fusion imaging between three-dimensional coronary sinus and coronary veins computed tomographic images with projection images obtained using fluoroscopy.

Abstract

AIMS Coronary sinus (CS) and coronary veins are not delineated by fluoroscopy. The study evaluates the feasibility and accuracy of cardiac tomography (CT) image registration of CS anatomy on fluoroscopic image. METHODS AND RESULTS Eighteen consecutive patients underwent contrast-enhanced, ECG-gated CT scanning. Coronary sinus, coronary veins, superior… (More)
