System And Method For Determining Dynamic Physiological Information From Four-Dimensional Angiographic Data
WARF: P160068US01

Inventors: Charles Mistretta, Charles Strother, Gabriel Shaughnessy

The Invention
A system and method are provided for generating time resolved series of angiographic volume data having flow information. The system and method are configured to receive angiographic volume data acquired from a subject having received a dose of a contrast agent using an imaging system and process the angiographic volume data to generate angiographic volume images. The angiographic volume data is processed to derive flow information by determining a distance between two points along a vessel in the angiographic volume images and determining a phase at each of the two points along the vessel in the angiographic volume images. A flow direction or a velocity of flow within the vessel is determined using the distance between the two points along the vessel and the phase at each of the two points along the vessel.
