Three-Dimensional Rotational Angiography

Three-dimensional rotational angiography (3D-RA) is routinely used in many different medical fields including neurovascular treatments and electrophysiological procedures. With the advent of transcatheter valve implantation and extensive aortic repair, 3D-RA has evolved to be an additional valuable imaging tool to optimize procedural success in endovascular treatment and cardiothoracic surgery.
