Visualize:Vascular™ uses Salient’s patented algorithm to renders the residual lumen or true lumen in 3D from the 2D frames in a cine clip. The algorithm automatically finds the residual lumen on each frame (top view), extracts the features and renders the residual lumen in 3D (bottom view). The algorithm then measures key indicators to calculate luminal reduction – a salient point in assessing vascular health.
Visualize is a distinctive and separately defined exam. It does not use the velocity or color data typically captured during a vascular ultrasound exam. There is a specific protocol for acquiring images which collects about 300 frames for 3D rendering.
