Abstract Cardiac catheterization procedures for patients with congenital and structural heart disease are becoming more complex. New imaging strategies involving integration of 3-dimensional images from rotational angiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT), and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) are employed to facilitate these procedures. We discuss the current use of these new 3D imaging technologies and their advantages and challenges when used to guide complex diagnostic and interventional catheterization procedures in patients with congenital heart disease.

Background Modern fluoroscopic angiography systems permit rendering of three-dimensional volumetric data sets using rotational angiography (3D-RA). Along with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or multi-detector-row computed tomography (MDCT) data sets, they can be fused with live fluoroscopy images for roadmapping during therapeutic procedures, but the value of multimodality fused data sets has not been clarified. Methods In a pediatric cardiac catheterization laboratory, we analyzed 78 intervent...

Purpose: Volumetric roadmaps overlaid on live x-ray fluoroscopy may be used to enhance image guidance during interventional procedures. These roadmaps are often static and do not reflect cardiac or respiratory motion. In this work, the authors present a method for integrating cardiac and respiratory motion into magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-derived roadmaps to fuse with live x-ray fluoroscopy images, and this method was tested in large animals. Methods: Real-time MR images were used to captur...

Background Bi-plane angiography is the gold standard for imaging the pulmonary arteries (PAs) after cavo-pulmonary connection (CPC). Three-dimensional rotational angiography (3DRA) is emerging technology that we hypothesized may enhance diagnostic capabilities in this patient group. Methods Retrospective review of patients who underwent 3DRA to assess the PAs after CPC. 3DRA images were examined for diagnostic quality and compared, both qualitatively and quantitatively with corresponding 2D imag...

Technologies which allow rotational angiographic image acquisition and three dimensional (3-D) vascular reconstruction with subsequent fluoroscopic registration for live 3-D image overlay are rapidly being adopted. We present the first use of rotational angiography with integrated 3-D image overlay for guidance during complex pulmonary artery stent placement. Technical considerations, advantages, and limitations of this procedural strategy are discussed. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Background— X-ray magnetic resonance fusion (XMRF) allows for use of 3D data during cardiac catheterization. However, to date, technical requirements have limited the use of this modality in clinical practice. We report on a new internal-marker XMRF method that we have developed and describe how we used XMRF during cardiac catheterization in congenital heart disease. Methods and Results— XMRF was performed in a phantom and in 23 patients presenting for cardiac catheterization who also needed car...

Objectives: To establish the feasibility of fusion of a 3-dimensional computed tomography (3D CT) dataset to the routine fluoroscopic image in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. Background: Routine fluoroscopic imaging in the cardiac catheterization laboratory often does not provide adequate anatomic detail for structural cardiac interventions. The modern C-arm is capable of acquiring CT-like 3D images (Syngo DynaCT), and the overlay of CT-acquired details on the fluoroscopic image may be u...

Imaging modalities utilized in the interventional cardiology suite have seen an impressive evolution and expansion recently, particularly with regard to the recent interest in three-dimensional (3D) imaging. Despite this, the backbone of visualization in the catheterization laboratory remains two-dimensional (2D) X-ray fluoroscopy and cine-angiography. New imaging techniques under development, referred to as three-dimensional rotational angiography (RA) and C-arm CT, hold great promise for impro...

Purpose: In X-ray fused with MRI, previously gathered roadmap MRI volume images are overlaid on live X-ray fluoroscopy images to help guide the clinician during an interventional procedure. The incorporation of MRI data allows for the visualization of soft tissue that is poorly visualized under X-ray. The widespread clinical use of this technique will require fully automating as many components as possible. While previous use of this method has required time-consuming manual intervention to regi...

Objectives This study sought to retrospectively evaluate our initial experience using angiographic computed tomography (ACT) in a pediatric cardiac catheterization laboratory. Background ACT provides cross-sectional CT images from a rotational angiography run using a C-arm mounted flat-panel detector in the interventional suite. A 3-dimensional (3D) angiographic image can be created from the CT volume set and used in real time during the procedure. To our knowledge, its use has never previously ...

Early spontaneous detection of thrombin activation benefits precise theranostics for thrombotic vascular disease. Herein, a thrombin-responsive nanoprobe conjugated by a FITC dye, PEGylated Fe3O4 nanoparticles, and a thrombin-sensitive peptide (LASG) was constructed to visualize thrombin activation and subsequent thrombosis in vivo. The FITC dye was linked to the LASG coated on the Fe3O4 nanoparticles for sensing the thrombin activity via the Forster resonance energy transfer effect. In vitro fl...

Abstract Pediatric cardiology is eminently dependent on imaging for the accurate diagnosis and treatment of congenital and structural heart disease. The understanding of the three-dimensionality of the normal and pathological inner structures of the heart, their dynamic spatial inter-relationships and the influences on flow are critical to planning and performing interventions. Advances in computer technology have made three-dimensional reconstructions readily available and the quality of these ...

Background Three-dimensional angiography is performed during X-ray guided interventional procedures to aid diagnosis and inform treatment strategies for children and adults with congenital heart disease. However, 3DA contributes substantially to patient radiation dose and may lead to an ...

Abstract We describe a 64-year-old woman with subclavian pseudoaneurysm after aortic coarctation repair, treated using a hybrid approach involving true three-dimensional analysis and image fusion-guided placement of thoracic endovascular aortic repair stents. This case illustrates the potential complications of coarctation repair and need for lifelong surveillance in these patients. (Level of Difficulty: Advanced.)

3D visualization technologies have evolved to become a mainstay in the management of congenital heart disease (CHD) with a growing presence within multiple facets. Printed and virtual 3D models allow for a more comprehensive approach to educating trainees and care team members. Computational fluid dynamics can take 3D modeling to the next level, by predicting post-procedural outcomes and helping to determine surgical approach. 3D printing and extended reality are developing resources for pre-pro...

Abstract As the scope and complexity of transcatheter interventions for congenital heart disease has expanded over the past several decades, so too has the role of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in planning, guiding and assessing the results of these procedures. While fluoroscopy and angiography continue to be the primary imaging tools for diagnostic and interventional procedures, TEE provides complimentary and often times superior imaging for a growing number of procedures. These includ...

Increased catheter-based interventions in congenital and structural heart disease require imaging modalities to be oriented in the same visual perspective. The use of echocardiography-fluoroscopy fusion (EFF) imaging has been developed for better characterization of complex anatomy and to facilitate key steps in interventional procedures. This review will detail the technology behind EFF, the differences between the two ultrasound fusion systems, and essential features of EFF imaging in congenit...
