Scientists Introduce New Tools to Better Visualize Angiographies, Preoperative CT Scans

Interpreting valuable information from X-rays and angiography images is very difficult for untrained eyes. Now scientists at the University of Montreal's Hospital Research Center have developed a new software that coverts those textured, difficult to understand images into much more comprehensive color coded visualizations.

"Remarkable advances in imagery have improved surgery and helped to develop less invasive interventions. But the images are still far from being perfect. We want to develop new software to maximize the use of images generated with current ultrasound, scanning, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technologies to ultimately provide more personalized treatments," said Dr. Gilles Soulez, who presented the new technique at the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Society of Europe (CIRSE) conference on September 27, 2015.

The research team is also working on technology to address an issue with how preoperative images are combined with fluoroscopy X-rays taken during an intravascular procedure (a procedure within a blood vessel or blood vascular system). An issue arises when tools are introduced, but the preoperative images stay as though tools don't affect them, often confusing the situation.

By effectively updating the preoperative images to take account of the ongoing instrumentation, the researchers hope to provide a more accurate live view of the working area.
