Valve Geometry

Recommended Posts

I've checked at that NIH website, and couldn't find anything.  Most scans the valves don't show up well.  Does anyone have any scans or reconstructions (based upon actual data) of the tri/bicuspid or semilunar leaflets/cuffs?    I'm trying to find something about the actual shape of them.  I have found papers describing the inner workings and layering of various tissue types, but nothing on gross morphology.  I've also found models that were approximations. 

 

Dicom or raw data is fine.

 

Any help is much appreciated - Thanks!!

Valves are tough. You would have to get a high resolution EKG-gated coronary CTA most probably. EKG-gating is necessary to avoid blurring of the values. I don't know of any datasets off-hand. Anyone in the community know of any?

Thanks!  The more I researched this the more difficult I've found out it is.  I've improvised in the meantime.  I think I can get by using a different design.  Was hoping that a little biomimicry could go a long way.  ;-)

 

Thanks again!
