3D localization of vena contracta using Doppler ICE imaging in tricuspid valve interventions.

Int J Comput Assist Radiol Surg 2022 May 19. Epub 2022 May 19.

Robarts Research Institute, 1151 Richmond St., London, ON, N6A5B7, Canada.

Purpose: Tricuspid valve (TV) interventions face the challenge of imaging the anatomy and tools because of the 'TEE-unfriendly' nature of the TV. In edge-to-edge TV repair, a core step is to position the clip perpendicular to the coaptation gap. In this study, we provide a semi-automated method to localize the VC from Doppler intracardiac echo (ICE) imaging in a tracked 3D space, thus providing a pre-mapped location of the coaptation gap to assist device positioning.
