Paper Abstract

The technique of Image Plane Integral (IPI) Holography has been demonstrated as a useful method for providing autostereoscopic three-dimensional viewing for conventional cineangiography. IPI holograms have a bright, high resolution image that presents proper spatial perception and faster comprehension of orientation, shape and distribution of vascular anatomy. The actual holographic conversion can be made routinely, economically and quickly by photographic technicians with a moderate amount of retraining. The format of the hologram is a Mylar film that is easily seen on a modified light viewbox. Holographic techniques previously attempted with angiography and planar imaging modalities have shown many limitations including low S/N ratios, narrow viewing angles, narrow depth-of-field, distorted spatial relations and various optical aberrations. IPI holography offered at a single imaging center could provide a convenient source of three-dimensional hard copy that would enhance various specific modalities such as conventional cineangiography, DSA, X-ray CT, magnetic resonance imaging (NR) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT).
