Abstract
The goal of this work is to demonstrate the feasibility of 3D imaging of coronary stents using fluoroscopy. This technique could potentially provide an inexpensive and non- invasive alternative to stent inspection by intravascular ultrasound. The major difficulty to e overcome is real or apparent motion of the stent between successive views. We solve this problem by tracking a feature point ont he stent prior to performing the 3D reconstruction. We shifted the images to eliminate this apparent motion, then reconstructed the 3D stent image using iterative backprojection. The stent cross-sectional images are successfully reconstructed with spatial resolution of approximately 0.4 mm. This successful reconstruction of a coronary stent in vitro demonstrates the feasibility of 3D imaging of coronary stents using fluoroscopy.
