This is Xiaolin Sun, a doctoral student in Berlin.
I am writing this message to ask for your kind help with 4D straightened volume rendering.
I used the animal cardiac CT to reconstruct the right heart. The CT was reconstructed in every 10% of the cardiac cycle(from 0 to 100%), with this I get the 4D cardiac CT directly. Then I applied segmentation(right heart)-> Add centerline-> Curved Planar reformat->volume rendering, to get the straightened right heart model. As in the screenshot (right ventricle-pulmonary artery, top->down).
Furthermore, 4D dynamic heart can be achieved by volume rendering.
Now, I am wondering how can I get the 4D straightened volume rendering, a beating straightened model. Should I segment every 10% of the cardiac cycle, export the Dicom file, register the 10 frames ( from 0-100 % of the cardiac cycle), or use other extensions? Could you please offer me some detailed guidance to achieve this?
Thanks in advance.
