syngo CTO Guidance
- Automated segmentation of the coronaries, centerline extraction, and color-coding of the centerlines.
- Color-coding indicates foreshortening of the vessel segment. This allows optimal angulations of the lesion segment to be selected, which is typically not visible on X-ray before the actual procedure begins.
- Color-coded centerlines are used for registration during the case. Therefore, less angiography images are needed.
The additional use of syngo CTO Guidance in interventional treatment of CTO facilitates wire crossing and positioning allowing side-by-side (fluoro and CTA images) guidance. Further information such as calcification and the true length and course of closed vessel segments are useful for wire selection, procedural orientation, and success.
