Systems and methods are disclosed for integrating imaging data from multiple sources to create a single, accurate model of a patients anatomy. One method includes receiving a representation of a target object for modeling; determining one or more first anatomical parameters of the target anatomical object from at least one of one or more first images of the target anatomical object; determining one or more second anatomical parameters of the target anatomical object from at least one of one or more second images of the target anatomical object; updating the one or more first anatomical parameters based at least on the one or more second anatomical parameters; and generating a model of the target anatomical object based on the updated first anatomical parameters.


Systems and methods are disclosed for image reconstruction and enhancement, using a computer system. One method includes acquiring a plurality of images associated with a target anatomy; determining, using a processor, one or more associations between subdivisions of localized anatomy of the target anatomy identified from the plurality of images, and local image regions identified from the plurality of images; performing an initial image reconstruction based on image acquisition information of the target anatomy; and updating the initial image reconstruction or generating a new image reconstruction based on the image acquisition information and the one or more determined associations.


Embodiments include computer-implemented methods and systems for reporting the presence of myocardial bridging in a patient, the method comprising detecting, within a patient-specific model representing at least a portion of the patients heart based on patient-specific anatomical image data regarding a geometry of the patients heart, a segment of an epicardial coronary artery at least partially surrounded by the patients myocardium to determine the presence of myocardial bridging; and computing, using at least one computer processor, at least one physical feature of the myocardial bridging to identify the severity of the myocardial bridging.


Systems and methods are disclosed for evaluating a patient with vascular disease. One method includes receiving one or more vascular models associated with either the patient or with a plurality of individuals; receiving observed perfusion information associated with the patient; and estimating, using one or more computer processors, one or more blood flow characteristics or one or more pathological characteristics of the patient based on the observed perfusion information and the one or more vascular models.


Embodiments include a system for determining cardiovascular information for a patient. The system may include at least one computer system configured to receive patient-specific data regarding a geometry of the patients heart, and create a three-dimensional model representing at least a portion of the patients heart based on the patient-specific data. The at least one computer system may be further configured to create a physics-based model relating to a blood flow characteristic of the patients heart and determine a fractional flow reserve within the patients heart based on the three-dimensional model and the physics-based model.


Embodiments include a system for determining cardiovascular information for a patient which may include at least one computer system configured to receive patient-specific data regarding a geometry of an anatomical structure of a patient; create a model representing at least a portion of the anatomical structure; create a physics-based model relating to a blood flow characteristic within the anatomical structure; determine a first blood flow rate at at least one point of interest in the model; modify the model; determine a second blood flow rate at a point in the modified model corresponding to the at least one point of interest in the model; and determine a fractional flow reserve value as a ratio of the second blood flow rate to the first blood flow rate.


A system is described for determining cardiovascular information for a patient. The system comprises at least one computer system (40) configured to: receive patient-specific data regarding a geometry of at least a portion of an anatomical structure of the patient, the anatomical structure including at least a portion of a plurality of arteries and tissue connected to at least a portion of the plurality of arteries; create a three-dimensional model (10) representing the anatomical structure of the patient based on the patient-specific data; divide at least a portion of the three-dimensional model representing the tissue into segments; and determine information regarding a blood flow characteristic associated with at least one of the segments based on the three-dimensional model and a physiological condition of the patient.


Systems and methods are disclosed for modeling changes in patient-specific blood vessel geometry and boundary conditions resulting from changes in blood flow or pressure. One method includes determining, using a processor, a first anatomic model of one or more blood vessels of a patient; determining a biomechanical model of the one or more blood vessels based on at least the first anatomic model; determining one or more parameters associated with a physiological state of the patient; and creating a second anatomic model based on the biomechanical model and the one or more parameters associated with the physiological state.


Systems and methods are disclosed for evaluating a patient with vascular disease. One method includes receiving patient-specific data regarding a geometry of the patients vasculature; creating an anatomic model representing at least a portion of a location of disease in the patients vasculature based on the received patient-specific data; identifying one or more changes in geometry of the anatomic model based on a modeled progression or regression of disease at the location; calculating one or more values of a blood flow characteristic within the patients vasculature using a computational model based on the identified one or more changes in geometry of the anatomic model; and generating an electronic graphical display of a relationship between the one or more values of the calculated blood flow characteristic and the identified one or more changes in geometry of the anatomic model.


Systems and methods are disclosed for controlling image annotation. One method includes acquiring a digital representation of image data and generating a set of image annotations for the digital representation of the image data. The method also may include determining an association between members of the set of image annotations and generating one or more groups of members based on the association. A representative annotation from the one or more groups may also be determined, presented for selection, and the selection may be recorded in memory.
