About this study

3D angiography (3DA) imaging is a valuable method for assessing cardiovascular anatomy prior to and following trans-catheter intervention.  Current 3DA contributes substantially to the overall patient radiation dose for these procedures.  The purpose of this work is to assess the clinical efficacy of reduced radiation dose 3DA.
