Inline VF

With Inline VF (Ventricular Function) you can perform fully automatic volumetric assessment, ejection fraction calculation - during the scan. The heart is located and the endo- and epicardial borders are detected automatically. Data output is right after the image reconstruction without any user interaction.

  • Reliable and fast cardiac volumetric and ejection fraction assessment in a busy, throughput oriented environment.
  • Automatic volumetric assessment and ejection fraction calculation in cardiomyopathy (dilated, hypertrophic, etc.), pericardial disease, cardiac tumors and cardiac transplants.

Eigenschaften & Vorteile


  • Scan is done with PACE multi-breath-hold protocols and Inline VF is directly integrated into the acquisition sequence.
  • All cardiac phases are automatically segmented and the smallest and largest volumes are assumed to be ES (End Systolic) and ED (End Diastolic) phases.
  • Slices are acquired from base (at the level of mitral valve) to apex.
  • Easy user guidance with graphical selection of ED, ES, basal and apical slices.
  • Contour generation is done automatically.
