The tricuspid valve annulus is being measured with the use of CT imaging and 3D reconstruction!

Minimally invasive, transcatheter tricuspid valve replacement (TTVR) relies strongly on pre-procedural imaging. Therefore, the assessment of tricuspid annular dimensions by cross-sectional imaging such as CT is of increasing relevance.

This image was acquired using IMMR’s Brilliance 64-slice gated CT scanner by Philips with 3mensio 3D reconstruction software. This system is invaluable in cardiac and pulmonary imaging applications, among many others.

IVC: Inferior Vena Cava (also called Caudal Vena Cava)
SVC: Superior Vena Cava (also called Cranial Vena Cava)
RA: Right Atrium
RV: Right Ventricle
