AngioVis Post-processing Protocol

Transfer / translation of datasets

  • CTA datasets are DICOM networked to workstation (ANGIOVIS1)

  • Translation into F3D-file format

1 min

Post-processing steps

  • Remove background (patient table, foot rest)

1 min

  • Remove bones (semiautomatically)

*10-20 min

  • Vessel tracking (through all conducting vessels)

*15-30 min

Total post-processing time *25 – 50 min
* depending on the quality of the dataset and the complexity of disease
