C-arm Cone Beam CT Perfusion Guided Cerebrovascular Interventions

2017-07-28 12:08:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The overarching objective of our proposal is to develop a One-Stop-Shop imaging using the available C-arm Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) data acquisition systems currently widely available worldwide in interventional angiography suites to enable acute ischemic stroke patients to be imaged, triaged, treated, and assessed using a single modality in one room.

Description

This is an evaluation to determine the efficacy of the use of C-arm CBCT with SMART RECON novel software for the rapid assessment of time-resolved CTA and CT perfusion in the setting of ischemic cerebrovascular events. As a leading center for the treatment of cerebrovascular disease in the Midwest as well as being one of the first Comprehensive Stroke Centers in the United States we have a large potential patient group to assess. Our pilot plan is to compare conventional CT/CTA/CTP acquired during the clinical work up with C-arm CBCT/CTA/CTP acquired in the angiography suite at initiation of therapy. The C-arm CBCT acquisition provides whole brain coverage (compared to only 8 cm brain coverage with conventional CT) with less radiation and higher resolution; the CT perfusion maps obtained using C-arm CBCT and new reconstruction algorithms provides better perfusion maps.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Computed tomography modalities which use a cone or pyramid-shaped beam of radiation.

Modality of computed tomography in which the patient is irradiated in a spiral path around the body with a cone or pyramid-shaped beam.

Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.

An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.

Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.
