Cardiovascular Improvements

It is crucial to the recent advancements in the cardiovascular industry to be flexible in segmenting and quantifying every part of the complete cardiovascular anatomy. Regardless of designing stents, valves, CRM devices or benchtop models, beginning with image data is an excellent way to ensure that your device is meeting the needs of its intended use and that poor designs are eliminated before costly trials. With this release, Materialise concentrated heavily on incorporating exciting new tools and features specifically for cardiovascular professionals.


1. New tools for Segmentation

  • Helps save time and increase consistency with semi-automated coronary segmentation tools
  • Efficiently segment 4D data using mask morphing technology

Coronary Segmentation


2. New tools to Measure/Design/Model

  • Rotate your image stack to arbitrary angles for interactive multi-planar reformatting (MPR)
  • Improve analysis with curved planar reformatting (CPR), stretched view of a vessel from spline or centerline
  • Improve visualization with a link between 3D view and fluoroscopy angles
  • Increase quantification options with ellipse measurements
  • Perform TAVI/TAVR valve sizing and planning
  • Enhance flexibility with new centerline options
    • Create planes perpendicular to a centerline
    • Calculate distance over a centerline
    • Split  and/or delete centerline branches
    • Edit centerline control points
    • Export centerlines to Matlab
    • Quantify centerline triad to identify challenging anatomy
