Liver embolizations, simplified.

To deliver therapeutic material to tumors during transarterial chemoembolization therapy, identifying the liver's vessels accurately is essential to the success of intervention. But the liver's complex vasculature can make precise identification of tumor-feeding vessels in 2D and 3D images a challenge, often requiring significant amounts of time, radiation, and contrast media.

FlightPlan for Liver helps interventionalists plan their liver embolization procedures. Automatic segmentation (color highlighting) of vessels from the operator-defined starting point to the vicinity of the operator-defined region of interest.

Highlights

  • Intuitive 3-step operation streamlines your workflow.
  • Gives you the capability to segment liver vasculature from the catheter's tip with a single mouse click.
  • You can use identified vessels as 3D roadmaps with Innova* Vision1.

Features

FlightPlan for Liver processes GE CBCT images and includes the following main features:

  • Automatic segmentation of the liver arterial tree from an operator-defined starting point
  • Definition by operator of a region of interest
  • Automatic segmentation (color highlighting) of vessels from the operator-defined starting point to the vicinity of the operator-defined region of interest
  • Ability to manually add and remove vessels in the vicinity of the operator-defined region of interest
  • Export to Vision 2 application to overlay segmented vessels over real-time fluoroscopic image
  • Multi-modality 3D review to load and compare CT or MR datasets side by side with GE CBCT datasets 

 

System Requirements

FlightPlan for Liver is available on the AW Workstation and AW Server platforms. 

Intended Use

FlightPlan for Liver is a post processing software package that helps the analysis of 3D X-ray images of the liver arterial tree. Its output is intended as an adjunct means to help identify arteries leading to the vicinity of hypervascular lesions in the liver. This adjunct information may be used by physicians to aid them in their evaluation of hepatic arterial anatomy during embolization procedures.
