With the availability of accelerated 4D velocity mapping, comprehensive information on the vascular anatomy and cine velocity fields can be obtained. In addition, hemodynamic parameters such as pressure differences and wall shear stress can be derived from those measurements. While this approach offers extensive information, it also poses significant challenges for data visualization and analysis in clinical practice. Here we present our experience in adapting a commercial engineering visualization package to address the unmet need of a comprehensive visualization for these multi-dimensional data for patients with congenital heart disease.
