The Angiography and X-ray Division of Siemens Medical Solutions has introduced interventional cardiac 3D (IC3D) technology to create three-dimensional (3D) images of the coronary vessels in the heart.

When paired with Siemens' Axiom Artis imaging system, IC3D allows cardiologists to view the coronaries in 3D with as few as two images, leading to precision in determining appropriate stent size and length, faster examination times, the use of less contrast medium and lower radiation dosages.
