Our purpose is to assist the catheterization using a preoperatively generated CT angiography to extract the heart, segment the vessels, analyse them and register it intraoperatively with the x-ray angiography to present the "scene" to the doctor in 3D and thus enabling catheterizations also for less experienced doctors.
