This case was submitted through Siemens Healthineers.
Proper imaging and procedure planning are critical to the success of treatments aimed at mitigating structural heart disease. A large academic medical center in the U.S. performed an ultra-low-dose cardiac exam using a dual source computed tomography (CT) system (the SOMATOM Force from Siemens Healthineers) that enables fast temporal resolution (66 ms) cardiac examinations. Providing a clear, motion-free evaluation of the entire heart is required for examining structural abnormalities.
In the case below, images from a 98-year-old patient are evaluated (via 3mensio analysis software/Pie Medical Imaging) for transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR), in order to determine sizing and positioning for a mitral valve replacement.
