MR Cardiac Function Analysis of the Right Ventricle Job Aid

MR Cardiac Function Analysis of the Right Ventricle Job Aid syngo.via MR MR Cardiac Function Analysis provides the functionality to quantitatively analyze the function of the ventricles. 1. From the Patient Browser, load the appropriate data set into MR Cardiac Analysis Workflow:  If the examination has been correctly mapped, double click to load.  If manual mapping is required, right‐click the examination and select Assign Work‐ flow > MR Cardiac Analysis 2. The Cardiac Reading Step enables you to view functional, dynamic, tissue characterization and flow data using the common tools. 3. Select the MR Cardiac Function step MR Cardiac Analysis MR Cardiac Reading WIR Cardiac Function 4. Performing Right Ventricle Analysis – select > RV Analysis MR Cardiac Function LyAnalysis RV Analysis a. Normal Mode – is the default. You can segment the right ventricle in two ways. i. User Guidance assists you with a recommended workflow for refining segmentation and guides you through each of the steps required. It is important to check the results and refine segmentation where required. ii. Direct Editing – contours can be created and refined directly using the contour editing and contour creation tools. b. Manual Mode – you create and refine all contours manually with the provided tools MR Cardiac Function Published by Siemens Healthcare GmbH © Siemens Healthcare GmbH, 2018 SIEMENS Master Template: EFF Date 22 Aug 17 | HOOD/HILS HOOD05162002647849 Healthineers Jobaid: Effective Date: 09/04/2019 | HOOD05162003028607 Job Aid | Insert Title of Job Aid Effective Date: 09/04/2019 | HOOD05162003028607 c. If you need to edit the segmentation of the RV Analysis, select Guidance. The Set Landmarks tab and the Refine Contours tab guide you through the segmentation refinement process. When you select the Refine Contours tab, the corresponding icons are activated in the Case Navigator.

Start segmentation refinement and follow the guidance steps: i. Check the ED and ES phase for accurate segmentation. If the Set Landmarks tab is selected > correct the selection in the TVG segment. Drag the ED and ES slider to the appropriate positions. ii. Define the base plane in the long axis working segment by defining two points at the height of the base plane iii.

Create/Editing MR Cardiac Function Findings – Throughout MR Cardiac Analysis, all standard measurement tools are available to create findings. The results of the current functional analysis are availabe in the Findings details. The wall thickending results of LV functional analysis is documented in an AHA‐conforming segment model. LV and RV findings can be created separately using the corresponding buttons in the Findings details. a.
