A single mouse click provides multiple viewing orientations to assess the mitral valve.

The user can trace and evaluate the annulus of the mitral valve and obtain a clear view of the complex saddle shaped structure. ED and ES phases are automatically determined.

Key Product Features

  • Easily trace mitral annulus and evaluate the complexity
  • One click orientation within the mitral apparatus
  • Dynamic visualization of mitral valve, left ventricle and left atrium
  • Determine access route challenges
  • Assess the optimal C-arm angles with the simulated angio view

Key Results

  • Detailed annulus information such as perimeters, surfaces, angles, etc.
  • 3D distances between anatomical landmarks and the mitral valve

Septal crossing

  • Visualization of cardiac structures in a simulated angio view
  • Anatomical relations between interatrial septum, LAA ostium, mitral annulus and/or vena cava
