IVME: A tool for editing, manipulation, quantification, and labeling of cerebrovascular models

Abstract

Three-dimensional (3D) vascular models are important in medical education, interventional radiology and vascular surgery. Because of a limited quality of angiographic images and inaccuracies introduced during their processing, interactive enhancement of the resulting models is required. We introduce here a novel tool, the interactive vascular modeling environment (IVME) for editing, manipulation, quantification, and labeling of cerebrovascular models. We describe the IVME architecture and design along with the functionality supporting anatomy terminology linking, 2D and 3D labeling, editing, 2D-3D cross-referencing, measurements, and quantification. The IVME is a useful platform in education, research, and clinics to explore and manipulate the angiography data in 2D and 3D.
