Figure 1. Cardiac fusion imaging for procedural guidance. A) 2D TEE Doppler colour image showing the aorto-right atrial shunt (white arrow). B) CTA-fluoro fusion image: cardiac fusion imaging guidance to cross the fistula from the aorta (AO) to the right atrium (RA). C) Fluoro image: stiff wire crossing from the aorta into the right atrium. D) CTA-fluoro fusion image: wire advanced and snared into the inferior vena cava (IVC). E) CTA-fluoro fusion image: device deployment guided by cardiac fusion imaging. F) Fluoro image: final result showing the AMPLATZER Duct Occluder (ADO) device (red arrow) sealing the aorto-atrial fistula.
