Cranial vascular workflow
Frameless Registration of Multiple 2D DSA and 3D Datasets
Treat your cranial vascular patients to less invasive imaging
The Elements Angio workflow offers quick and comprehensive fusion of 2D vessel imaging with 3D volumetric data, all without the need for an additional frame-based angiography procedure. This unique suite of applications helps to create the intracranial structures to prepare for SRS treatments where the correct detection and segmentation of the target object is challenging.
Preparing for cranial vascular planning
The cranial vascular workflow is a modular software suite to create and flexibly process treatment plans for neurovascular procedures. It also eliminates the need for a localizer frame, saving you and the patient time.
Unique co-registration of 2D DSA to 3D data
Elements Image Fusion Angio uniquely fuses multiple 3D volumetric imaging data like CTA or MRA. By utilizing multiple DSA acquisitions, it accounts for outlining from different perspectives. The selection of various regions of interest support co-registration.
Advantageous by the usage of diagnostic imaging data
Being able to use diagnostic angiography data is advantageous since it eliminates the need to repeat this time-consuming, invasive procedure with a localizer frame.
Quick and easy interactive 3D contouring
Elements SmartBrush quickly and comprehensively outlines intracranial vascular structures with side-by-side outlining on 2D DSA images and fused 3D imaging data. Color intensity projections help to better visualize different phases of the contrast flow.
Versatile use cases
Elements SmartBrush also supports the creation of multiple vascular structures with dedicated view layouts selecting various fused 2D DSA pairs. These can be further used for staging and follow-up.
Planning with dedicated VMAT application
After creating the target volume object, Elements Cranial SRS is the next seamless step in the workflow for intracranial SRS treatment planning. Connectivity with DICOM RT interfaces enables export to other treatment planning solutions.
