The Calcium Scoring software calculates the area of the CT value corresponding to the calcification area and so on in the coronary arteries from non-contrast-enhanced CT images.
Increase and prevention of heart diseases
The mortal rate due to heart diseases occupies a very high percentage worldwide. Heart diseases are caused mainly by contraction due to arteriosclerosis of the coronary arteries which provide oxygen and nutrition to the heart, resulting in a worsened blood flow. They are considered to be most likely caused by one’s lifestyle such as diet and exercise, and therefore, they can be prevented by improving the lifestyle.
Cardiac CT examination and calcium score
When there is severe calcification in the coronary artery, contrast-enhanced cardiac CT may be hard to evaluate the intravascular lumen. By performing cardiac CT without contrast-enhancement and calculating the calcium score, an appropriate examination can be selected depending on the condition of the patient. With Calcium Scoring, calcification of the coronary artery area can be followed up over time as well as the fluctuation in the score can be observed.
The Calcium Scoring software calculates the area of the CT value corresponding to the calcification area and so on in the coronary arteries from non-c ontrast-enhanced CT images.
Coloring in 3 modes
The area of CT value corresponding to calcification can be automatically extracted and colored per coronary artery. With 3 types of processing modes, calcification areas can be easily colored and modified.
Results are displayed in real time
On the lower right corner of the viewer, the results of the calcium score are displayed per coronary artery. The results are updated in real time depending on coloring and modification and you can check them promptly.
Creation of examination reports and image storing are made easier
The reporting function of Calcium Scoring allows you to create the analysis results of the calcium score in a short time by simple operations such as automatic item entries and prior registration of comments.
In addition, analysis images can be stored in the color DICOM format or BMP format, and moreover, a list of analysis results can be outputted in the text format (CSV).
Calcium Scoring calculates the calcium score in real time just by selecting a calcification area.
