An evaluation of using real-time volumetric display of 3D ultrasound data for intracardiac catheter manipulation tasks

The enthusiasm for novel, minimally invasive, catheter based intracardiac procedures has highlighted the need to provide accurate, realtime, anatomically based image guidance to decrease complications, improve precision, and decrease fluoroscopy time. The recent development of realtime 3D echocardiography creates the opportunity to greatly improve our… CONTINUE READING
