Highly detailed images inside the body can be created through a non-surgical technique known as digital biplane angiography or 3DRA (three-dimensional rotational angiography). Several images are taken, often during surgical procedures, using a C-shaped device that rotates around the patient. The images are reconstructed in a 3-D sequence to provide life-like projections of body tissues and processes.
Clearer Pictures, Better Results
When dealing with tiny and fragile systems inside the body, the sharper the images, the better our physicians and neurosurgeons can target the specific point of concern and deliver the precise treatment you need. Using the 3DRA system, HCA Virginia teams clearly see the path to your treatment.
Richmond's Only Digital Biplane Angiography Unit
As part of our investment in your good health and our ongoing leadership in healthcare technology, services and treatments, HCA Virginia offers the only 3-D digital biplane angiography unit in the Richmond area. With this advanced technology available through our Neurovascular Center, our interventional neuroradiologists specialized physicians who know how to use the latest innovative tools to treat previously inoperable neurologic conditions view higher quality images faster and with the clarity needed for the most effective diagnosis and treatment.
3DRA at HCA Virginia
Digital biplane angiography systems at HCA Virginia improve diagnosis and treatment of many neurologic and other conditions, such as arteriovenous malformation (AVM), where it's important to see detailed flow patterns inside blood vessels. We also use 3DRA for spine fracture and other spine conditions, stroke, brain aneurysm, peripheral vascular conditions, vasospasms and brain tumors.
