“Not only do the 3D images help us to plan our surgical interventions accurately and decrease our surgical risks based on orthogonal measurements and various reconstructions, but they also help us convey what we know as healthcare providers into something that every patient can understand. A lot of our young Marfan Syndrome or Bicuspid Aortic Valve patients are asymptomatic and are shocked to find out that they need a major aortic procedure. The 3D reconstructions often help patients understand and visualize their pathology. We have found that the images provided by Laura and her staff are instrumental in helping patients break through their denial and become more active in their care. It’s hard to put into words how important the services provided by the 3D imaging lab are; fortunately they can produce pictures worth more than a thousand words!”
