Advancing 3D TEE: True Volume and Quantification for Valve Repair Echocardiography for Precision at the Speed of Life

In cardiovascular medicine, every heartbeat, every second, every image counts. Thanks to Siemens’ advancements in 3D/4D TEE and volume color Doppler, you can now visualize form, function, and flow in one volume view—without compromises. Advanced echocardiography technologies allow you to visualize what’s needed and quantify what matters for your valve repair and replacement procedures.

Modeled Mitral and Aortic Valves with Regurgitation
  • True volume 3D TEE offers clinically relevant volume sizes and volume rates with volume color Doppler.
  • With automated valve modeling, fuel comprehensive understanding of mitral and aortic valve anatomy and function within seconds for increased confidence and decreased procedure time—even in the OR.
  • Combined with IN Focus technology, the ACUSON SC2000™ ultrasound system PRIME platform is engineered to provide uniform, anatomically precise images.
  • Easy acquisition, manipulation, navigation, and quantification for sound decisions.
  • Static or dynamic models and accompanying geometric measurements help guide ultrasound TAVR (transcatheter aortic valve replacement) as well as mitral valve repair and replacement including MitraClip® procedures.
  • The double-shielded true volume 3D TEE transducer provides imaging with extremely low electromagnetic interference.

Mitral Valve

Visualize form, function, and flow in one volume view for a comprehensive understanding of the mitral valve, and view dynamic valve models with volume color Doppler to appreciate the details of valve function and flow.

Diseased Mitral Valve with Leaflet Measurements Modeled in Seconds, Not Minutes
Diseased Mitral Valve with Leaflet Measurements Modeled in Seconds, Not Minutes

Segments of mitral valve leaflets are modeled and measured using the automated eSieValves™ advanced analysis package. Selected measurements are highlighted and displayed, providing the surgeon with critical details on prolapsed leaflet segment lengths, diameters, and intertrigonal distance.

Aortic Valve

Automated software can rapidly provide a model of the aortic valve with the geometric measurements you need to help guide your procedures, including ultrasound transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).

A tissue-like rendering of the aortic valve is generated by eSieValves™ advanced analysis package. Many measurements-including minimum and maximum annulus diameters-are available to ensure proper sizing for valve replacement.

True volume color Doppler provides important blood flow details for guidance during MitraClip® procedures.

Post-MitraClip Placement Volume Color Doppler

A true volume 3D TEE transducer helps guide ideal MitraClip placement by providing volume color Doppler with simultaneous atrial and ventricular visualization of total blood flow through the mitral valve.
