A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11911210B2) describes a system that includes a probe with a transducer array for acquiring three-dimensional data of a vasculature, a tracking device, a beamformer, an image processor, a flow processor, and a segmentation processor. The system also incorporates an image guidance system with a memory, processor, and display to overlay real-time optical feed with a three-dimensional model of the vasculature based on spatial locations. The three-dimensional model outlines average contours of the vasculature and aids in visualizing blood flow and vessel structures during medical procedures.

The patent further details a method and a computer-readable medium encoded with instructions for producing flow images, creating a tissue-flow mask, mapping flow images to identify vessel voxels, extracting vessel wall surfaces, and overlaying optical feed with the three-dimensional model. The system allows for real-time visualization of blood flow and vessel structures in a cavity, enhancing medical procedures by providing accurate guidance based on spatial tracking signals. The dynamic three-dimensional model visually presents pulsation of the flow, aiding in precise instrument placement and treatment of vasculature behind outer surface tissues. The patent highlights the integration of ultrasound imaging with optical camera-based guidance systems to improve procedural accuracy and patient outcomes.
