syngo.via - CT Myocardial Perfusion

syngo.via® CT Myocardial Perfusion syngo.via CT Myocardial Perfusion is designed to aid in the evaluation of blood perfusion of the cardiac mus- cle. The software can calculate blood flow, blood volume, and other parameters from sets of images recon- structed from dynamic CT data of the heart. Quantitative evaluation of the myocardial blood flow may ena- ble a more robust assessment of the hemodynamic relevance of intermediate coronary stenosis. 1. From the Patient Worklist, load an appropriate data set into the CT Myocardial Perfusion Workflow: • If the examination has been correctly mapped, double click to load • If manual mapping is required, right-click the examination and select Open With > CT Myocardial Perfusion 2. Myocardial Perfusion results are auto-processed and can be 1: Motion Correction viewed on the Perfusion Evaluation step.

In the Perfusion Evaluation step, Circular or Freehand ROIs can be drawn to obtain additional quanti- tative information about the myocardial perfusion data set. Results are populated to the Statistics tab, which can be exported with a right mouse click.

Use the Motion Correction step to improve images that still show motion. • To perform an automated myocardial motion correction, click the Align icon. Possible shifts between the caudal the cranial cardiac parts are corrected, followed by a non-rigid Align registration of the volume. • To define a new motion correction base: • Navigate on the Time Slider to the desired time point. Align Base • Click the Align Base icon on the Case Navigator, and the white triangle will jump to the selected time point. • To exclude time points from evaluation: • Navigate on the Time Slider to the desired time point. • In the Case Navigator, click the Exclude icon to exclude the currently displayed BE time point, or click the Range Exclude icon to exclude all time points from the cur- rently displayed to the last available time point. E Segmentation and 4D Noise Reduction: Use the Segmentation step to reduce image noise and to check and define the volume and structures for evaluation.

This should be applied only after motion correction Reduce and only if no motion (or negligible motion) is still present. If there is still motion in the Noise image, do not use. • The Segment Myocard icon is used to edit the Volume of Interest (VOI) which is automatically created to include all of the left ventricle.

You can change the value for maximum enhancement of the reference vessel if the value is underestimated or was not properly identified. • Adjust the threshold of the purple vessels overlay if the overlay wrongly covers other tissues or big vessels are not covered. • Enable the Window icon • Use the middle mouse to window vessels in and out, or manually enter a value in the Window current threshold window. • Disable the Window icon to complete. Results Preview: Click the Results Preview step once the vessels are properly defined.
