Paper Abstract

Selecting the best catheter prior to coronary angiography significantly reduces the exposure time to radiation as well as the risk of artery punctures and internal bleeding. In this paper we describe a simulation based technique for selecting an optimal catheter for right coronary angiography using the Simulation Open Framework Architecture (SOFA). We simulate different catheters in a patient-specific arteries model, obtain final placement of different catheters and suggest an optimally placed catheter. The patient-specific arteries model is computed from the patient image data acquired prior to the intervention and the catheters are modeled using Finite Element Method (FEM).
