Determining x-ray projections for coil treatments of intracranial aneurysms.

Abstract:

The endovascular coil embolization of intracranial saccular aneurysms requires a set of specific X-ray images with which to view the aneurysm during coiling. These two-dimensional (2-D) images, known as working projections, should be optimal for measuring the aneurysm sac diameter, inserting the first coil, and checking coil overhang into the surrounding vessels. At present the gantry tilt that produces these images is found by the radiologist by trial and error. In this paper, we present a m...
