Comparison of 3D reconstruction methods based on different cardiovascular imaging: a study of multimodality reconstruction method.


Coronary arterial imaging and the assessment of the severity of arterial stenoses can be achieved with several modalities classified mainly according to their invasive or noninvasive nature. These modalities can be further utilized for the 3-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of the arterial geometry. This study aims to determine the prediction performance of atherosclerotic disease progression using reconstructed arteries from three reconstruction methodologies: Quantitative Coronary Analysis (QCA), Virtual Histology Intravascular Ultrasound (VH)-IVUS-Angiography fusion method and Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography (CCTA). The accuracy of the reconstruction methods is assessed using several metrics such as Minimum lumen diameter (MLD), Reference vessel diameter (RVD), Lesion length (LL), Diameter stenosis (DS%) and the Mean wall shear stress (WSS). Five patients in a retrospective study who underwent X-ray angiography, VH-IVUS and CCTA are used for the method evaluation.
