Argus 4D VF

With Argus 4D VF (Ventricular Function), a typical ventricular function and mass analysis can be done in less than a minute. This method uses a heart model based algorithm instead of contour tracing.

  • Highly accurate volumetric assessment and ejection fraction calculation in cardiomyopathy (dilated, hypertrophic, etc.), pericardial disease, cardiac tumors and cardiac transplants.

Features & Benefits


  • A 4D model can be created with a few mouse clicks by defining the center of the LV apex on an apical short-axis cine, center of the LV base on a basal short-axis cine, mitral valve insertion points on a 2- and/or 4-chamber plane in diastole and systole.
  • The model-based algorithm provides within a few seconds the appropriate endo- and epicardial contours on all slices and phases as well as a summary table including various data for volume, function and mass.
  • No missing ventricular volume nor additional atrial volume deterioration due to cardiac phase adaptive 4D model.
