The QVA workflow can be extended with research functionality. The QVA research workflow has additional functionality for use in research studies. Drug Eluting Stent (DES) analysis enables you to evaluate restenosis and edge effects in pre-, post- and follow-up studies. User Defined Subsegment (UDS) analysis offers the user the option to divide the vessel into multiple subsegments. QVA for Research facilitates accurate and reproducible analyses in (multi center) research studies in a fast and user-friendly way.

Key results

  • Dedicated segment models
  • Single vessel results can be displayed in the Drug Eluting Stent model.
Key product features
  • Evaluation of restenosis and edge effects on Drug Eluting Stents
  • Evaluation of overlap for Drug Eluting Balloons
  • Independent evaluation of multiple segments within one vessel part.
