Holography for imaging in structural heart disease

EuroIntervention. 2016 May 17:12 Suppl X:X81-X84. doi: 10.4244/EIJV12SXA15.


Three-dimensional imaging modalities for structural heart disease interventions have become a common feature in the procedural workflow. The images acquired are usually presented on 2D displays, thereby restricting their usefulness and the ability to interact with them. Holographic images created in real time from the volumetric data which float in the air during the procedure, in front of the operator and above the patient, could provide an intuitive and interactive display for the interventionalist and improve procedure outcomes.
