The Optimal projection workflow is designed to limit the use of contrast and to save valuable time. This workflow determines in which projection all cusps of the aortic root are aligned and visible.

Key Product Features

  • Determine the optimal C-arm position for valve placement
  • Reconstruct the aortic root in 3D
  • Measure aortic root dimensions

Key results

  • Optimal Projection with all cusps aligned and visible
  • Diameter of ascending aorta, sinotubular junction and sinus of valsalva based on 3D
  • Diameter of basal plane based on caliper measurement
  • Ostia height measurement
