The Advanced Medical Imaging Lab offers a variety of image post-processing services to support clinical evaluation, diagnosis, and pre-operative planning for Computed Tomography (CT) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) studies.

The Lab is staffed by 3D Technologists whose work is driven by approved protocols as well as on-demand requests under concurrent physician supervision.

The 3D Lab’s current scope of practice for post processing includes:

Vascular

  • Vascular studies for clinical evaluation with positive findings for pre-operative planning and post-operative follow up [standard protocol]

Interventional

  • Liver segmentation and volumes from CT and MRI studies for lesion treatment. Tumor volumes can be done with scheduled direct physician supervision [on demand]

Neuro

  • Vascular studies for clinical evaluation [standard protocol]
  • Craniofacial reconstructions for preoperative planning [on demand]
  • Virtual 3D model of the brain with subdural grid placement for preoperative planning [standard protocol]

Cardiac

  • Measurements for Cardiac and AP TAVR pre-operative planning [standard protocol]
  • Measurements of PVs and virtual model of LV for EP pre-operative planning and surgical navigation [standard protocol]
  • Cardiac post processing and EF measurements clinical evaluation [standard protocol]

Orthopaedics

  • Musculoskeletal post processing for clinical evaluation, pre-operative planning and post-operative follow up [on demand]

Pediatrics

  • Virtual airway flythrough from CT studies for non-invasive clinical evaluation of the airway [on demand]

3D Printing Anatomy

  • Patient specific anatomy segmentation and printing to assist with surgical planning and patient education [on demand]
