Clinical Edition, EU
vascuCAP® Clinical Edition is an image analysis tool for evaluating routinely available CT images of arterial vessels now available for clinical use in CE Mark countries. vascuCAP® provides multi-dimensional visualization and measurements to aid clinicians in their analysis of arterial anatomy and tissue characteristics. With vascuCAP®, tissue characteristics implicated in high risk atherosclerotic plaque may be quantitatively measured from CT Angiography(CTA) in high correlation with histopathology.
Available anatomical visualization and measurement for clinical decision support include:
- Lumen diameter and wall thickness, shape, and cross-sectional area at 0.5mm intervals along a calculated centerline of one or more chosen arterial segments or multi-segment paths.
- Aggregates of cross sectional data including lumen-wall ratios (stenosis, dilation, plaque burden, and remodeling ratio) segmental and overall volumes by segment or path.
- Length, cross sections and aggregate data of user-defined lesions or other regions of interest.
- Measurement of calcified plaque, lipid-rich necrotic core, and matrix areas of interest for each vessel segment or path under user supervision;
- vascuCAP® is designed to mitigate overestimation of calcification on CTA;
- vascuCAP® is designed to mitigate underestimation of lipid rich necrotic core on CTA;
- Aggregation of calcified plaque, lipid-rich necrotic core, and matrix area and volume statistics for each vessel, segment, path or user designated lesion (absolute and fractional occupancy);
- Display of calcified plaque, lipid-rich necrotic core, and matrix regions of interest in multiple 2D and 3D formats for clinician to visualize the relative positions of each sub-region to the lumen for treatment planning and outcomes assessment.
- Unique automatically generated narrative report text generated for lesions marked and vessels analyzed by user
vascuCAP® workflow facilitates reporting of the clinician’s quantitative findings with supporting visualization and comparison with prior findings using the CAPgraph® informatics solution.
The measurements provided by vascuCAP® are not intended to provide a diagnosis or clinical recommendations. vascuCAP® is intended as a tool to complement standard of care.
Elucid is pleased to announce it has achieved CE marking for vascuCAP.*
