Fast-track VR for Cardiac Imaging in Congenital Heart Disease

We sought to evaluate the appropriateness of cardiac anatomy renderings by a new virtual reality (VR) technology, entitled DIVA, directly applicable to raw MRI imaging data without intermediate segmentation steps in comparison to standard 3D rendering techniques (3D PDF and 3D printing). Differences in post processing times were also evaluated.

You can see the aneurysm very clearly and know whether this will need a bypass or a stent, so that very complex cases could be done very nicely. Great Software.

We assessed the use of VR models that has all the advantages of the other 3D modeling techniques but with the significant advantages of being easy to manage, reproducible, faster, and less prone to human errors.
